Scarecrows of the Port | Portsmouth NH Homes

Portsmouth NH Market Square Circle of Scarecrows

If you make your home in Portsmouth NH, or have been visiting and wishing you had a Portsmouth New Hampshire home, you’ve most likely seen all the endearing scarecrows that have popped up all around the downtown area.

Some just kinda sneak up on you, and others are right out there and easily spotted.

These Scarecrows of the Port are the brainchild of volunteers from the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, and various businesses around town added some scarecrows of their own this year.  “The Scarecrows of the Port began last year when the submarine USS New Hampshire was commissioned.  It was suggested that the scarecrows would be a good draw to the city and give the submarine event another perspective of Portsmouth.”, quoted from The Portsmouth Herald.
