The neighborhood of “Puddle Dock” was built around boats, boat-building and the maritime trades. The “Port of Portsmouth” marine exhibit and The Boatshop at Strawbery Banke demonstrations return the skills and crafts of traditional boatbuilding to the site. The independent Gundalow Company (next door) helps the museum interpret Portsmouth’s maritime history on the water.
A cultural, community and economic initiative to restore and lease underutilized properties at Strawbery Banke Museum in the historic center of downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
