HISTORIC PORTSMOUTH #50

Portsmouth’s oldest burying ground was established in 1671 near what is now Prescott Park. This ornate carved stone marked the graves of two sisters who died in 1695 and 1696. A year later their father was killed by Indians while walking home from church in Portsmouth. A new Blue Ribbon Committee is currently drawing attention to Portsmouth’s historic and endangered graveyards.
