Residence of William Whipple

The Moffat-Ladd House in Portsmouth, N.H., was the residence of General William Whipple (signer of the Declaration of Independence) and his wife, Catherine Moffat. The two left-most windows on the second floor look into the bedroom of William and Catherine. Built in 1763, the house is open to the public during the summer. (Submitted by J.
