LT I Seacoast, History Social Studies Day, Nov. 16, Wentworth Coolidge Mansion, 8:00-3:30pm

LT I Seacoast Area will have its History/Social Studies Day at the Wentworth Coolidge Mansion in Portsmouth NH on Thursday, November 16, 2006 from 8:00am-3:30pm. The Wentworth Coolidge Mansion is located at 375 Little Harbor Road, Portsmouth, NH 03801. In case you get lost the phone number is: 603-436-6607.

Directions to the site and a link to their website are below.

The Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion is the former home of New Hampshire's first royal governor, Benning Wentworth, who served in office from 1741 to 1767. The rambling, 40-room mansion which overlooks Little Harbor, is one of the most outstanding homes remaining of the colonial era. Its stateliness and impressive interior and furnishings reflect aristocratic life in Portsmouth in the 1700s.

The Mansion reflects five distinct periods of architecture. The extraordinary skill of New Hampshire's eighteenth century craftsmen is exhibited in the intricate hand-carved mantelpiece. The council chamber and the spy closet reveal details about daily life and government during the colonial period. Purple lilacs, descendants of the first European stock imported by Wentworth, decorate the grounds.
