Two years ago, the City entered a partnership with Portsmouth Historical Society (PHS) to frame the City’s 400th anniversary celebration. While the City does not turn 400 years old until 2023, this partnership and grant money from the City laid the foundation for Portsmouth400 with hiring of a Director who initiated fundraising.
Portsmouth400 held two public input sessions at Portsmouth Public Library in June 2018. The feedback from these sessions formed the basis for branding, organization, and programming ideas. Now the Portsmouth400 Director and Steering Committee have formed a strategic partnership with the Portsmouth Public Library to continue fundraising and to develop a framework for ongoing Portsmouth400 programs that engage every member of the community, leading up to 2023.
