This 1760 structure is one of the finest Georgian houses in the US. Elizabeth and Mark Hunking Wentworth were among Portsmouth's wealthiest and most prominent citizens, so no expense was spared in building this home, which was a wedding gift for their son. Ticket price includes admission to the adjacent Tobias Lear House , a hip-roofed colonial residence that was home to the family of George Washington’s private secretary.
