Like Old Sturbridge Village Plimoth Plantation, New Hampshire has its own Living History museum and village near Portsmouth, NH. From their website:
Originally named Strawbery Banke by early (1630) British settlers for the wild berries growing there, Strawbery Banke today is unique among outdoor history museums - tracing 375 years of history in one of America's oldest continuously occupied neighborhoods. The 10-acre site, with its authentically restored houses and shops, period gardens, and costumed role players, presents the daily lives of ordinary people who lived here - from Colonial times to World War II, from the mundane to the elegant, from economic boom to war time austerity - in engaging and accessible ways. Strawbery Banke Museum is a capsule of New England seaport life across four centuries.
This is a very exciting opportunity for fun vacation and homeschool activities! Many many thanks to the Friends of the Davis Public Library for enabling us to provide this to our patrons!

Our tickets provide us with:

  • Unlimited daily admission for 2 adults and up to four children
  • Free admission to these popular events:

    • An American Celebration (4th of July)

One final note, also from their website:
"Please do not eat the plants in the gardens."

Dang!
