Summary:

  • 'Old City Hall building' built in 1800 built on land donated by Bridget Grafton,
  •  “Portsmouth Advocates is a non-profit organization established in 1980 to promote the preservation of the historic and architectural character of Portsmouth. Our members are all volunteers - citizens who care about the special heritage and flavor that make Portsmouth so distinctive. Portsmouth Advocates provides area residents with a collective voice and a viable means to influence changes affecting the character of our city. Preservation for its own sake is not our goal. We believe that the demolition of older, viable buildings and neighborhoods diminishes our heritage and threatens Portsmouth's historic assets. The re-use and rehabilitation of existing buildings represents conservation at its best. It makes sense in both economic and cultural terms.”  http://www.portsmouthadvocates.org/
