Did you know that George Washington visited our fair city of Portsmouth in 1789? See what he did and where he went by walking the streets of Portsmouth in the footsteps of George Washington! See where he took tea with his secretary’s mother, Mrs. Lear, attended services at St. John’s Church, and was feted at a reception at Governor John Langdon House. The tour returns to Langdon House, which Washington thought “may be esteemed the first in Portsmouth,” where you can use your ticket for a tour of the house at half price.
