HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #35

Portsmouth’s "robber baron" came to town as a barefoot Barrington boy. He became mayor and a NH congressman. He owned a brewery, button & shoe factories, insurance companies, a bank, a theater, many hotels, racing stables, electric, telephone & railroad companies. Jones was not, however, a philanthropist and died in 1902 worth $5 million.
