Strawbery Banke:
Strawbery Banke has a long and rich history, stretching back to the earliest years of English settlement in New England. In 1630, Englishmen chose this tidal inlet of the Piscataqua River as a safe harbor for their first settlement, and they called their outpost Strawbery Banke for the profusion of wild berries they found near the river. By the eighteenth century, the site was a thriving waterfront neighborhood in an important seaport that had been renamed Portsmouth. Throughout these centuries of change, people lived and worked here, experiencing in a small, personal way, the major events and currents of America’s history. Strawbery Banke, the museum, is dedicated to the study of the lives of these people and others who left their mark on Portsmouth’s history.
