Portsmouth's history is one of bravery and revolutionary thinking. Settled in 1638, Portsmouth was the second settlement in the area. As leader of the settlement, Anne Hutchinson was the first woman to found a community in the New World. During the Revolutionary War, one of the most daring captures took place in Portsmouth when General Richard Prescott, the British Commander-in-Chief, was captured by Colonel William Barton of Rhode Island. This capture took place in the Overing House on West Main Road and is now marked with an historical plaque.
Portsmouth Condos & Landmarks
Portsmouth condos are not far from some other key historical landmarks including Founders Brook, the landing site of the first settlers from Boston, led by John Clark and William Coddington, in 1638. The Portsmouth Compact, used to govern Portsmouth as a democracy, is inscribed on a bronze and stone marker. As well, Hessian Hole, where the famous Battle of Rhode Island, took place, is now home to Carnegie Abbey Club, a private, 450-acre sporting estate offering golf, tennis, horseback riding, and both marina and luxury residences.
