Portsmouth: An Old Town by the Sea
From Strawbery Banke to the Naval Shipyard, Portsmouth has always been the economic, cultural, and political hub north of Boston. Brightly-colored saltbox homes and towering lighthouses line the churning currents of the Piscataqua, and narrow lanes echo with the footsteps of John Paul Jones, the Reverend Joseph Buckminster, and centuries of hunters, lumberjacks, merchants, and tourists.
