The U.S. Customs House Tour gives you exclusive access to view the soaring interior spaces decorated with gilding, marble and ornate plasterwork. Constructed soon after the Great Fire of 1866, the Customs House opened for business in 1872, quickly becoming a gateway for one of the five largest ports in the county. New Hampshire granite, walnut woodwork and Italian marble were used in construction, ensuring the building will stand for generations as a symbol of stability, wealth and strength.
