Vaughn Cottage is a small library, museum, and archives located 10 miles off the coast of Portsmouth, NH, on Star Island.  This rich and diverse collection is open to the public during the summer months.

  1. Hi Melissa. I love your blog! I was wondering if the photographs that you post are owned by the Vaughan Cottage or if you find them elsewhere. I am finishing up a graduate degree in English and I have to do a curatorial presentation that focuses on photography. My obvious choice was an historical look at Star Island 🙂 Is there anywhere that you’d recommend that I look for photos (besides here, of course!)? Thank you! Sarah (Arts)

    • Hi, Sarah, I’m so glad you like the blog! Have you checked out the links at the bottom of our website page here: http://vaughncottage.omeka.net/more ? I recommend the Portsmouth Athenaeum, Library of Congress and New York Public Library links you can find there for other images. The images I used on the blog are property of Vaughn Cottage. I would love to see your presentation when you’re finished! Let me know if I can be of any further help. Best, Melissa
