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. Assitance for the festival comes from the New Hampshire Highland Games or NHSCOT.org For more information on the performers, click here.

The family reunion is open to all and includes descendants of the extended Warner and Wentworth families. Learn more about the families.

The Warner House is turning 300 this season! Older than many towns in New Hampshire, the Warner House is truly a remarkable survivor, narrowly avoiding first the paths of two devastating early-19th-century fires and then its imminent demolition in the early 20th century for a gas station.  The museum opens on June 1st!  For more information, check out the Calendar of Events. Sign up for our e-newsletter and stay up to date with the latest events!
