The PHC Project

The Portsmouth History Center Project

As part of the Portsmouth 375th celebration funds were collected to conduct celebration events, but also to help the town preserve its rich history and afford the means to get information on our town heritage.

The Portsmouth History Center Project that was managed by the Portsmouth 375th Steering Committee is now being managed by the Portsmouth 375th Legacy Group and is dedicated to the preservation of Portsmouth history.

A dedicated area has been established as the “Portsmouth History Center” within the Portsmouth Free Public Library.
