About Us

Portsmouth Historical Society, a nonprofit founded in 1918, promotes the history, culture and arts of New Hampshire’s only seaport city. Located in a dynamic small community with a world-wide reputation, Portsmouth Historical Society (PHS) encompasses a National Historic Landmark property, the John Paul Jones House and Garden; a gallery building with exhibitions that highlight the arts, history and culture of the greater Piscataqua region; a Welcome Center that orients visitors to Portsmouth; a museum shop carrying arts, crafts and local history products; and a small publications press focused on history and the arts. In addition, PHS offers educational programs for both adults and children; architectural and historical walking tours; advocates for Portsmouth’s architectural preservation; and is home to the City of Portsmouth’s 400th anniversary celebration (2023). Last year, we welcomed 41,000 visitors, twice the population of the city of Portsmouth.
