The Wentworth Lear Historic Houses (formerly Wentworth-Gardner & Tobias Lear Historic House Association) are a pair of adjacent historic houses on the south waterfront in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Both buildings and an 18th-century warehouse are owned by the Wentworth Lear Historic Houses and are operated as a house museum. They are located at the corner of Mechanic and Gardner Streets. The two houses, built c. 1750–60, represent a study in contrast between high-style and vernacular Georgian styling. The Wentworth-Gardner House is a National Historic Landmark, and the houses are listed as the Wentworth-Gardner and Tobias Lear Houses on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • We visited a number of historic homes in Portsmouth. This one is worth a stop. Our docent was informative and knowledgable.

  • Great historic house tucked off the beaten path. Pam was a fantastic guide!
  • This is a lovely historic home and an absolute must to see. Plus when you're done I cannot remember the name but go right across the road to the fabulous little seafood shack across the street for the perfect lunch.
