Strawbery Banke Museum

14 Hancock St., Portsmouth, NH 03801

Strawbery Banke is an outdoor history museum in the South End historic district of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It is the oldest neighborhood in New Hampshire to be settled by Europeans, and the earliest neighborhood remaining in the present-day city of Portsmouth. It features more than 37 restored buildings built between the 17th and 19th centuries in the Colonial, Georgian, and Federal style architectures. The buildings once clustered around a waterway known as Puddle Dock, which was filled in around 1900. Today the former waterway appears as a large open space. Nine houses are open to the public as furnished historic interiors.
