Jaffrey House

Description

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. The Museum of Fine Arts purchased the house in 1919 and removed two interiors and a cupboard. The house was destroyed in 1920.
