Portsmouth NH – Beauty and History in Our Churches

Portsmouth NH - Our Brand New Steeple on the North Church in Downtown Portsmouth

If you live here and make your home in Portsmouth New Hampshire, then you’re likely already aware of the beautiful churches all around town.

Portsmouth is an area rich in history, and our churches play important roles in that history as well.  Our oldest town churches are right in the heart of downtown, Market Square area.  One of our stately historic downtown churches was part of Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride to warn of the British coming.

North Church underwent a complete rebuilding of its magnificent steeple that can be seen from many areas of town.  North Church sits proudly in the very heart of our downtown Market Square, and has been the subject of many paintings and photographs of Portsmouth.


Enjoy this picture tour of some of the wonderful churches and houses of worship that await you here when you make Portsmouth NH your home!

    • The insides of some of our churches are just gorgeous, and you’re right about the rich abundance of history here – Portsmouth was bestowed an award recently as being one of the top places in the country to visit for historical significance.

      You’ll get to see and experience some of this when you come for a visit this fall!
