the Heartbeat of Portsmouth Island

Record #:
Portsmouth Island was home to sailing captains, fishermen, lighters, hunters, and wrackers in the historic era. This community was dependent on the ocean and island resources. While the residents have long vanished, their stories remain preserved in a number of buildings on the island. The Methodist church and personal cemeteries bear witness to the past lives which created the small community.
