The year is 1917. As America enters the World War, a young lawyer in Brown's Valley, Minnesota leaves a
promising law practice to join the United States Army. Seventeen hundred miles away, on a quiet street near the center of town, construction begins on a stately Georgian Colonial house at 32 Miller Ave. in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Charles Dale served his country during World War I in the Coast Artillery Corps stationed in Portsmouth, not far from
the house on Miller Ave. He chose to remain in Portsmouth after the War, where he became mayor,
State Senate President, and Governor of New Hampshire.
And he chose the stately Georgian Colonial at 32 Miller Ave. for his home where, for over thirty years, he welcomed local, national and international dignitaries. Join us at the Governor's House
bed and breakfast and experience the same warm welcome and comfortable accommodations offered by Governor Dale to the political and business leaders of his time.
