Portsmouth, NH Photos

Portsmouth is noted for a heritage district which is partially contained within an open-air museum called Strawbery Banke on the National Register. This old seaport village has a fine array of colonial & Georgian houses. Across the Piscataqua River is the soon-to-be-closed Portsmouth Naval Shipyard which was established 1800. The Memorial Bridge (1923) is one of more picturesque lift bridges in the USA.
