story of the Hill House.
About 150 years off. Portsmouth was founded in 1752. The oldest homes still standing in Olde Towne date to the late 1700s, though most houses you see down there today were built in the 19th century. It's a great neighborhood. North Street is probably my favorite place to stroll.
