    Get ready to flip your kilts! Saturday, Aug. 6, 12-4 p.m.  Rain date is Aug. 7, 12-4 p.m. Join the Warner House during its 300th season for an afternoon of Celtic music!  The Celtic Festival celebrates the first owner of the house, Capt. Archibald Macpheadris. A Scots-Irish immigrant, Macpheadris was in Portsmouth about 1712, and he had the impressive Warner House built for him, c. 1716.  In 1709, Macpheadris joined the Scots Charitable Society in Boston, the oldest charitable society in the Western Hemisphere.  Representatives from the Society will be on hand to describe the Scottish presence in colonial New England.  Receive a special discount for a Macpheadris-era inspired brew at Earth Eagle Brewings. Cost is $10 members and $15 non-members.  Children 12 and under are free.  Food will be available to purchase from RiRa Irish Pub.

The family reunion is open to all and includes descendants of the extended Warner and Wentworth families. Learn more about the families. The matriarch of the Warner House was Sarah Wentworth, daughter of Lt. Gov. John Wentworth and brother of Royal Gov. Benning Wentworth. Sarah married Archibald Macpheadris in 1717 and lived in this house.
