John Langdon rose from modest origins to become a merchant, shipbuilder, Revolutionary leader, signer of the United States Constitution, and three-term governor of New Hampshire. The house he built for his family expresses his status as Portsmouth’s leading citizen and was praised by George Washington, who visited there in 1789. At the end of the nineteenth century, Langdon descendants purchased the house and restored it to its eighteenth-century glory. The handsome garden, dating from the same era, features restored perennial beds, a rose and grape arbor, and a pavilion.
