Portsmouth was incorporated in 1653, it was named Portsmouth in honor of the colony’s founder, John Mason. He had been the captain of the Port of Portsmouth, England, in the county of Hampshire, for which New Hampshire is named. English immigrants arrived in 1630 and named the village Piscataqua after the Native Americans of the Abenaki name for the River.
Later the village became Strawbery Banke for the many wild strawberries that were found growing beside the Piscataqua River. Strawbery Banke is now a museum which has a walking tour of historic Portsmouth homes from the ninetieth and twentieth century.Portsmouth Historic District Commission has helped retain most of the city’s architectural feel. In 2008 Portsmouth was named one of the “Dozen Distinctive Destinations” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

We proudly offer one of the South End's most unique antique properties. Not just another meticulous restoration, though thoroughly up-to-date and lovely. Even WMUR-TV thought so and featured it on New Hampshire Chronicle. After all, the 1778 Elbridge Gerry House is both flawlessly refreshed and comes with a splendid historical pedigree. Gerry, you see, was U.S. Vice President and signed the Declaration of Independence. Yet there are many compelling amenities for today's buyer. Uppermost is a hard to find private dock with deep water access. The entire waterfront world is now yours! The lot is oversized and beautifully landscaped with access from three different streets. The potential for further enhancement, like building a garage or studio, is here. As it is, there are waterviews almost everywhere. Well-appointed formal rooms beckon visitors, one of whom was actor Paul Newman. He must have enjoyed the seven working fireplaces, king pine floors and the third floor with its remarkable Piscataqua River views. Vistas so inspiring that the artist Christopher Ward learned to paint here. But perhaps it's the things you can't see that truly draw you to this special place. It could be waking to the sounds of blue heron, ducks, cormorants and other birds that call the area home. Or thoughts of leisurely walks to downtown Portsmouth, Prescott Park, maybe a day on the water. You are entitled to dream. Now make them come true!
