HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #121

The 1765 Charles Treadwell House stood at the corner of Middle and Congress Streets until the 1956. Historian Dorothy Vaughan watched in horror from her Portsmouth Library window as the building was torn down to make way for a bowling alley -- now office suites and restaurants. The loss of the building inspired Vaughan’s campaign to preserve Strawbery Banke Museum in 1957.
