The Story

Originally built in Rollinsford, New Hampshire c. 1701 it was removed from town in 1936 and rebuilt in Dover, Massachusetts and has been missing from the town’s landscape for almost 70 years.

House owner, Ken Rendell, generously donated the house to the town in 2002. During the months of September and October of 2002, historic building specialist, Stephen Bedard, worked with his crew in Dover, MA, to dismantle the Wentworth house and return it to its native soil in Rollinsford. Steve was hired to take the dwelling apart, piece by piece, and transport it back to NH, where it it has been reassembled within sight of its original lot.
