Built for a successful merchant in 1763, this mansion was located directly opposite the family's waterfront wharves and warehouses. Its adjacent counting house was added in 1830.
William Whipple, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and husband of Katherine Moffatt, lived and died in this house. Portraits, letters, manuscripts, fine furnishings, and textiles tell the story of 150 years of family history at the site.
The buildings and gardens are owned and operated by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America's New Hampshire chapter.
