The Portsmouth Historic Plaque Committee, a legacy project originating from the PNH400 2023 celebrations is continuing into 2024!

The owners of any building, no matter the age or location in Portsmouth, can research the origins of their home and complete the application for approval to install a plaque that has been pre-approved by the City’s Historic District Commission.

Stay tuned for future house research seminars at The Athenaeum & Library.

Athenaeum member Talia Sperduto of the Portsmouth Historic Plaque Committee is heading the plaque program.

The signs are primed and painted white with black, hand-stenciled lettering on red cedar. A small plaque is $250 and a large plaque is $275.

Please email portsplaques@gmail.com to apply.
