Historic 1784 home of Captain Thomas Thompson, one of the first naval officers commissioned by the Continental Congress. Capt. Thompson commanded the Frigate USS Raleigh, which was built on Badger's Island in 1776. The USS Raleigh is depicted on the NH State Seal. The 5,692 SF home has always been in private ownership and retains the aesthetic, architectural heritage of the period. Contiguous buildings include a shed, barn and a renovated 5+ room carriage house with 1,547 SF. Corporate meetings, nonprofit philanthropic initiatives and political gatherings have taken place in the parlor. National and local politicians, well-known film and theatre personalities and international dignitaries have been guests of honor at these events. Historic neighboring properties include; The Governor John Langdon House and Strawbery Banke. This home has history, legacy, presence and yet, there are still stories to be written. Are you the next author? Are you the next steward of this magnificent Portsmouth property?

Testimonials

While planning a move from the South Shore in Mass to NH, I was introduced to Mollie Ruffner. Mollie is professional, knowledgeable, well-connected around town, and pleasant to work with. She really listened and set up showings of all the places she knew that I would like. She introduced me to a new development in Exeter and I found my dream home. She is surrounded by the best people at Ruffner Real Estate. I would recommend them 100%.
