Portsmouth, New Hampshire is deeply rooted in America’s history. Less than two miles from the Hampton Inn Portsmouth Central New Hampshire Hotel you will find more than 70 points of historic significance along the Portsmouth Harbour Trail.
The tour begins in Market Square, which has been the economic center of Portsmouth since mid-1700. Along the route, are 10 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings, 10 National Historic Landmarks, and three homes maintained by the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities. You’ll travel along Market Street to the South End to State Street, Haymarket Square and Congress Street. You’ll see the famous North Church-towering over the square and visible from most anywhere in the city, snap pictures of Governor John Langdon’s House-a merchant & patriot leader and 3-time governor, and admire South Church-the only granite church in the Portsmouth area.
