Young Friends visit historic Portsmouth

Mar 21, 2011

This weekend the Young Friends of Historic New England and guests enjoyed private tours of the Governor John Langdon House and Jackson House in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, before the houses open to the public in June. Craig Tuminaro, Historic New England’s new regional site manager for Maine and New Hampshire, led behind-the-scenes tours of the 1784 Langdon House, built in the Georgian style, and the c. 1664 Jackson House, the oldest surviving wood frame house in New Hampshire.

Young Friends of Historic New England is a dedicated membership for young professionals interested in art, architecture, history, and design. Members (ages twenty-one to fifty) explore our region’s heritage through special-access tours and receptions.

Upcoming events include a tour of the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, and receptions throughout the summer.
