moffatt-ladd house

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  the family’s150 years at the home.

Built for a successful merchant in 1763, the magnificent historic mansion was located directly opposite the family’s wharves and warehouses on the Piscataqua River. An adjacent counting house was added in 1830.

The buildings and a spectacular garden are owned and operated by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America’s New Hampshire chapter.
