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