Gorham Hall in Exeter, New Hampshire

As part of our Building History series, today we take a look at Gorham Hall in Exeter, New Hampshire:

“This large brick building was built in 1851 as a hotel called the Sqamscot House. Here, in 1853, Amos Tuck convened a meeting of abolitionist politicians from several political parties to discuss forming a new antislavery party. Since 1929 the site has been proclaimed as the location where the Republican Party was founded. The building has served as a hotel, a Phillips Exeter Academy dormitory, and now an office building.”
