Portsmouth Named 1 of Only 5 Places To See This from Historic Publication
Portsmouth made Yankee Magazine's list of places to see Historic Homes in New England and they only chose 5 places! Portsmouth was chosen for the Historical Society's Walking Tour!
Here's what Yankee Magazine.com had to say about our beloved Portsmouth:
With their embellished doorways and authentic paint colors—mustard, dusty blues, cinnamon red, and earth tones—the well-preserved clapboard colonials in Portsmouth’s South End have irresistible allure for artists and photographers. Strawbery Banke Museum is home to 32 historic structures, dating back as far as 1695, that illustrate this neighborhood’s 300-year evolution; more vintage homes can be seen lining antique lanes such as Mechanic Street. Nearby are the Portsmouth Athenaeum and other brick beauties from the 19th century, the Federal mansions of Haymarket Square and Middle Street, Victorian showpieces like the Benjamin Franklin Webster House, and even the postwar Atlantic Heights neighborhood of Colonial Revival cottages built to house shipyard workers—all worth finding, photographing, and admiring.
