Welcome!


Located in the historic South End neighborhood of Portsmouth, NH, the Wentworth Lear Historic Houses overlook the back channel of the Piscataqua River.  The museum consists of three structures that all date from the mid-18th century:  the Wentworth-Gardner House, the Tobias Lear House, and the Warehouse.  Both the Wentworth-Gardner and Tobias Lear houses are classic examples of Georgian architecture.  Tours are given to the public from June 1st  through  October 12th.

The mission of the Wentworth Lear Historic Houses Association is to preserve and enhance its structures, collections, and grounds, and to contribute to the vitality of the community through education and outreach.

The Wentworth-Gardner House is also available for wedding photography.  If you are interested in having your wedding photos taken at this lovely historic house, please visit our wedding page for more information.
