Balusters, Wentworth-Gardner House, Portsmouth, N.H.

PC001.03.01.TMP.102 (RS599)

Description

An interior view of the balusters of the railing of the main staircase between the first and second floors of the Georgian-style Wentworth-Gardner House in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Mrs. Elizabeth Rindge Wentworth built the house in 1760 as a wedding gift for her son Thomas, who died in 1768. In 1793, Major William Gardner bought the house and lived there until he died in 1833. In 1915, Wallace Nutting purchased the house, restored the building, and added it as one of the five sites in his for-profit enterprise, the Wallace Nutting Chain of Colonial Pictorial Houses.
