Bright Shiny Faces: A Retrospective Look at Portsmouth Schools of Old is a collection from the Portsmouth Historical Society. Written records indicate that as early as 1716 the freeman in the town of Portsmouth, “…having considered how excellent an ornament learning is to mankind,” made an appropriation for building a schoolhouse. This was no doubt the first schoolhouse constructed at town expense. The collection of photographs and memorobilia is on display at the Library.
