A spectacular example of early Georgian Colonial architecture, the MacPheadris – Warner House in Portsmouth, NH was built c. 1716.

It was rescued from demolition and opened as a house museum in 1932 and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1960. Among other features, it contains the earliest known Anglo-American murals. Museum houses can be a valuable source of inspiration and ideas for restoring your historic house! http://warnerhouse.org/

Understanding the style of a house is the essential first step in developing a restoration plan that prioritizes the preservation and restoration of character-defining features while making changes necessary for modern life in an old house.

Many color photos are used to illustrate the Craftsman style in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”

The 720 page award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online booksellers.

Signed and personalized copies can be ordered directly from the author in our shop, YourHistoricHouse.com/shop/.

Learn more about historic architectural styles in “A Field Guide to American Houses,” the classic book on the subject by Virginia Savage, also available in our shop.
