Then and Now ~
The Federal Revival style Abbot-Spalding House was the home to a succession of prominent Nashua citizens, including Daniel Abbot who is the father of Nashua, George Perham and William Spalding.
The home was a common meeting ground of the famous and influential of New Hampshire.
In addition to the outstanding architecture of the Federal style home, the furnishings are fine pieces collected by the Spaldings, including glass, china. The Spalding family occupied the home for 73 years until it was purchased by the Nashua Historical Society in the late 1970's, from Miss Sylvia Spalding.
The interior and exterior have seen major restoration in recent years.
The ongoing commitment made by the Nashua Historical Society ensures the Abbot-Spalding House Museum's community role for future generations.
