Portsmouth Historic Homes

 

One of the reasons Seacoast NH real estate is prized among oceanfront properties is the rich history of its buildings and architecture. The city was incorporated in 1653 and Portsmouth’s Historic District Commission made sure that much of the city's architectural legacy survives today.
 
In Portsmouth you’ll find historic homes dating back to the 1730s. Or if you’re looking for something a bit more modern, you’ll find historic homes from the turn of the century. But you don’t need to wait for the town crier to learn what historic properties are available, just sign up with us and we’ll email you the latest.
