Description 

From 1764 until his death, this two story L-shaped wood structure was the home of John Sullivan (1740-1795), a major general during the War for Independence and one of Washington's ablest officers. In December 1774, leading 400 Portsmouth Sons of Liberty, Sullivan captured Fort William and Mary at the entrance of Portsmouth Harbor, appropriating its weapons and stores for the patriotic cause. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, November 28, 1972
