Spectacular Early Georgian Colonial

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 outstanding 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. This one is well worth a visit, along with a number of other great historic houses and sites in Portsmouth, http://warnerhouse.org/

Understanding the style of a house and its character-defining features is the first step in planning a rehab/restoration project that retains the character of the house.

The MacPheadris – Warner House is one of more than 20 examples included to illustrate the Georgian Colonial 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 now available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.
