The Moffatt-Ladd House

One of Portsmouth’s oldest structures is the Moffatt-Ladd House on Market Street, which was built in 1763.  The building has a beautiful garden hidden behind its Market Street facade, and probably one of the largest gardened open areas in downtown Portsmouth.  I love the look of this building, particularly as it is offset and complemented by the modern structure at 100 Market Street just next door.  I’ve always believed that our modern structures highlight the character of Portsmouth’s original buildings.

  1. I so miss Portsmouth and the old homes…growing up and living there till I was twenty was the best time of my life.
