Part of this house was standing when brothers George, Clark, and Thomas Greenman purchased the surrounding land in 1837 and founded the George Greenman & Co. Shipyard.
They lived here until George Greenman built the house on your right in 1839. About 1849 the 1 1/2-story house on this site was raised and a new first floor and a two-story ell were added.
For nearly 50 years it then served as a boardinghouse for ship carpenters and other laborers, run by ship joiner David Langworthy (1818-1902) and his wife Fanny.

Mystic Seaport is located on the site of the Greenman shipyard and textile mill. We hope to restore the Langworthy House as an exhibit building. If you would like to find out more about Mystic Seaport, please stop by our Visitor Reception Center opposite the first traffic light to your left.
