Piscataqua House
Strawbery Banke Presents
HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #43

This rare 1857 ambrotype is the only known image of one of Portsmouth’s early hotels. It stood on Pleasant Street where the Custom House building is today. This solid building – with its clapboard front and brick sides – was originally Farmer’s Hotel. Built in the 1830s, it therefore was part of the downtown for a fleeting 30 years or less.
