The Green Acre Baha'i School property sits on what was formerly Hanscom's Shipyard on the Piscataqua River. There, in 1851 this famous clipper ship, the Nightingale, was built and launched.
Designed by Commodore Isaiah Hanscom and named after Norwegian singer Jenny Lind, this ship was, for a short time, the fastest ship on the seas. It sank in about 1893.
