Designer Showhouse


Next summer, celebrated interior designers will transform the stunning and historic Beaux Arts Classical Style Frank E. Anderson House, built in 1906, into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and creativity. The stately 90 Concord Street mansion, built of red brick and dressed in white marble and slate with iconic columns and iron balustrades, will wow thousands from all over New England throughout the month of August 2018. This North End beauty is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the “Nashville Historic District.” It will feature the work of numerous designers, chosen through a juried process, from all over New England.

History of the House

The house was built by Frank E. Anderson, a resident of Nashua since the 1880’s, who was President of the Estabrook-Anderson Shoe Company, located in a factory between Palm and Pine Streets in Nashua. At its peak, the Company produced more than 10,000 pairs of shoes per day and had annual sales in excess of two million dollars. In 1925, the house was sold to Francis P. Murphy, who was the 74th governor of NH in 1936 and then again in 1938 and later went on to found WMUR radio and television. The House was later sold to the Manchester Convent of the Sisters of Mercy in 1947 and used by Mount Saint Mary Academy.
