G Gathering Home (in Portsmouth) for the Holidays

Home (in Portsmouth) for the Holidays



The Old Towne Historic Holiday Homes Tour once again allowed folks to get a look inside beautifully decorated historic properties in Old Towne Portsmouth. Refreshments were provided by the Portsmouth Historical Association and many of the homes had students from the Governor's School for the Arts providing musical entertainment.
