Unexpected experience. Lots of emotions at this site. The tour guide explained a lot about this site and how the city folk decided these people deserved to be recognized and remembered. Very well...

This is a moving tribute to the earliest Black inhabitants of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This is a history that has gone untold until very recently.

This is a stop on the Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail. Used in the 18th century, and the only known African Burial Ground in New England, the cemetery was paved over to further development in Portsmouth. The monument includes sculptures representing those buried beneath the pavement, quotes inscribed in the sidewalk, and signs on the surrounding buildings. This is a must visit for anyone interested in Black history in New England.
Located on Chestnut 🌰 Street.I use to ride up and down on my 🚲 bike. This fitting tribute to the discovery of caskets belonging to African Americans who were accidentally discovered while water 💦 mains were being excavated, has been set up for reflection of what happened in not only Portsmouth's history, but, our nations. The statue next to State Street, a man and woman nearly touching hands shows the separation of couples during slavery. A part of a speech 💬, where a man argued for his freedom, is along the ground leading to the Burying Ground. Markers, in the shape of people, with words inscribed on them stand in front of benches. Lights are installed for 🌃 night time. Little mosaics, that were made years ago by students of the Portsmouth Middle School. I'm glad Portsmouth put this here! I recommend a visit.
