THE RETURN OF THE (NEW) MEMORIAL BRIDGE

Thursday, August 8, 2013 marks the grand opening of the new Memorial Bridge in Portsmouth, NH, complete with a full-circle, ribbon-cutting ceremony, and the neighboring businesses and residences surrounding the bridge will let out a collective sigh of relief!  Thank you to the states of New Hampshire and Maine for the funding and to Archer Western for finishing the project so quickly and efficiently.  Since 1716, the Warner House neighborhood has changed considerably, and for nearly the past 90 years, the relationship between the old Memorial Bridge and the Warner House had reached a certain "it's complicated" status.

help the Warner house be truly fabulous in may!

For the month of May, the Fabulous Find thrift shop in Kittery, Maine, has partnered with the Warner House, Portsmouth Athenæum and Wentworth-Lear House where all of the May profits will benefit the three amazing historical organizations! 

How can you increase the profits?  It's Spring cleaning time, and you can donate your items! Particularly desirable are jewelry, gently worn men & women's clothing, small collectibles, art work, and small furniture.  No books, please.  You can bring your items to the Wentworth-Lear barn at 50 Mechanic Street, Portsmouth, NH, on April 26 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where there will be people to load up the items.  You can also bring them directly to the Fabulous Find in early May, and while you are there, shop for yourself, family and friends.

The Warner House is closed for the season.  Thank you to all who visited and supported the house in 2013.  Follow the Warner House on Facebook to keep up with the latest news for 2014 and to write a review of your visit.  To schedule an off-season tour, please give advanced notice by either e-mailing (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or by calling (603) 436 - 5909.

In 2016, the Warner House will celebrate the 300th anniversary of the house's construction, which began in 1716.  The T-shirt celebrates both the tricentennial, and the spirit of the Warner House families that called the house a home for six generations.

The shirt design comes from the only known gravestone of the early house occupants, Sarah Wentworth, infant daughter of Archibald Macpheadris and Sarah Wentworth Macpheadris.  Young Sarah was buried in the Point of Graves in Portsmouth, the oldest cemetery in the state. 

Gravestone Artwear of York, Maine, designed the shirt.

Order the shirt online or during the season in the gift shop.  All proceeds support the Warner House!
