Keeping Summer Tourism Thriving After Flood Damage to Portsmouth Properties
Flooding can be devastating to area homes and businesses without skilled professional restoration.
For many of the settlements and townships that developed throughout New England, Portsmouth is one with a vast and colorful history. Settlers initially found the region agreeable for living conditions as early as 1630, though, at this time, the city was named for its most generous offering, strawberries. Over the years and centuries, Portsmouth would multiply to the nearly 22,000 residents living here today.
Portsmouth is one of the stops for Revolutionary legend Paul Revere warning of the British arrival with their warships. Many of the historic structures from this famous war of American history still stand today throughout Rockingham County. Portsmouth, however, is known for much more than just its ties to the American Revolution.
