Jaffrey House parlor

PC039.USNH.02.002 (RS548)

Description

This interior view shows the parlor fireplace in the Georgian-style Jaffrey House on Daniel Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Wood paneling covers the walls except one area with wallpaper. Corinthian pilasters flank the fireplace, which has been blocked up. George Jaffrey, a New Hampshire Supreme Court justice, built the house on Daniel Street in 1730. The Museum of Fine Arts purchased the house in 1919 and removed two interiors and a cupboard. The house was destroyed in 1920.
