ABC Wednesday - H is for Historical House

H is for Historical House............

historical houses at strawbery banke in nh

I have done several posts about the Strawbery Banke historical houses in the past, and this photo shows the full structure that is known as the Sherburne House.

These houses are all gathered around an open grassy center that is known as the Puddle Dock.

The Puddle Dock used to be a tidal pool along the Piscataqua River that dried up years ago into this flat grassy area.

Shipping was an important part of the original community in this area as the river lead inland into the Great Bay and it's estuary and many smaller rivers.

Growing up in this area was a treat and I never tire of visiting it when I get back to the seacoast.

This is the fifth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.


  1. Very nice, I love historic areas. ABC Wednesday...hum, need to see what thats about. I'm not part of any meme's, but see so many folks with variations of them, guess I should get on board.

    Have a good day, do swing by for a visit, welcome mats always out.

  2. Lovely place and a great post for the letter H. I always enjoy visiting here.

  3. I love your photos and I love looking at historical homes we have many here in PA.

  4. Hi Karen - Strawbery Banke is located in Portsmouth NH. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hi Sandy - I have enjoyed this ABC Wed since it began - 5 rounds ago. It's neat to see what others come up with for their letters.

  6. Hi Photowannabe - I so enjoy visiting there, and loved it while growing up. It's good to see you - thanks for stopping by!

  7. Hi Jude - Many thanks to you for your kind words. I bet PA has some beautiful ones - with much history too!

  8. Hi Kathy,
    I too have been coming here now for many months and am always fascinated to see what you come with.

    Many times I am stuck on Wednesdays for a post and this would be such a great motivator to get out and search for photos.

    So I think I am going to take the plunge, go over and sign up.

    I love your shot of the historic homes. We use to spend a great deal of time visiting some of the old Antebellum homes when we lived in Texas.

    I hope you have a great weekend!!

  9. Nice pic, but I wish the copyright wasn't smack dab on the house; on the grass or something. I was distracted.
