North Church Skyline
An iconic Portsmouth landmark, the North Church defines the city’s skyline. The congregation was originally established in 1671 but did not move to the corner of Pleasant and Congress Street until 1712, where several incarnations of the church have since stood. The current structure was built in 1855, though numerous additions, updates and repairs have been completed over the years. Many important historical figures have worshipped at the North Church, most notably President George Washington, who visited on November 1, 1789.
