No. 7 - Atlantic Heights 
A World War I Shipbuilders's Community

By:  Richard M. Candee

At the beginning of World War I, the federal government authorized the establishment of shipyards to construct freighters. One such company was the Atlantic Corporation of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. After building ten ships the corporation went out of business but the unusual housing development constructed for the workers remains. This work follows the rise and fall of the shipyard then concentrates on the work of architect Walter Kilham who designed what has been called the finest industrial community of the era.
