Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail joins statewide group

PORTSMOUTH — The Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail, previously merged with the Portsmouth Historical Society, has a new home.

The carefully researched walking trail originally designed by historian Valerie Cunningham is now part of a newly formed statewide nonprofit organization.

“I am pleased and proud to announce that the PBHT is now officially owned and operated by the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire,” Portsmouth Historical Society president Ed Mallon announced this week. “We have been honored to work closely with the trail staff and volunteers for the last five years as its exciting and important programs grew. The stories of the PBHT have changed the lives of countless thousands who discovered four centuries of African-American history in New Hampshire’s only seaport.”
