Scottish Revolutionary War hero John Paul (“I have not yet begun to fight”) Jones is believed to have lived in this 1758 home during the war while overseeing construction of his sloop, the Ranger, which was likely the first ship to sail under the U.S. flag (a model is on display). He took a ragtag crew of locals to England and gave them no end of bother. The house is immaculately restored and maintained by the Portsmouth Historical Society; costumed guides lead tours.
