A view of the front façade of the three-story Georgian-style Jaffrey House on Daniel Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The entry porch is crowned by a sunburst pediment. Three dormers project from the hip roof. George Jaffrey, a New Hampshire Supreme Court justice, built the house on Daniel Street in 1730.
