Jaffrey House hall

PC039.USNH.02.005 (RS552)

Description

A view of the entrance hall and stairs in the Georgian-style Jaffrey House on Daniel Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. A runner covers the stairs. Two leather fire buckets hang from the arched wall. The right fire bucket bears "no. 2" and "1827." The walls are decorated with wainscoting and wallpaper. 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.
