Walking the Streets of Portsmouth: Where WSL Calls Home

Share this:

The city of Portsmouth is known as a great walking town, with daily walking tours, historic buildings, and beautiful scenery for all to enjoy.  One historic building is Wentworth Senior Living’s Pleasant Street Mansion. Originally built in 1763, the mansion changed hands among several prominent Portsmouth families after the Revolutionary War to eventually become a care facility for chronically ill children and seniors in the 1900s.  Since it was founded in 1911, our organization has dedicated itself to fostering community and caring for our residents.  Today, the expanded mansion makes up one of three seamlessly connected buildings the residents at Wentworth Senior Living call home.   

Wentworth Senior Living’s prime location is reflected in the surrounding scenery and abundance of activities within close distance.  Among favorites are Prescott Park and Strawbery Banke Museum, each with a host of activities every month.  If you’re finding yourself drawn to the more historic side of the city, WSL recommends visiting the Governor John Langdon House, a National Historic Landmark that tells the story of New Hampshire as an early colony.  Whether you take a guided tour or go on your own, we think you’ll find all that you’re looking for in Portsmouth.   

During this year’s World Alzheimer’s Month, WSL is participating in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This event is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.  At Wentworth Senior Living, our dedicated staff provides additional support to our residents who are experiencing Alzheimer’s and dementia every day.  We know how vital research, funds, and support are to those impacted by this disease.  Consider donating or join our team and walk the beautiful streets of Portsmouth on September 26th.  You can personally experience the beauty and learn about the city’s history by taking a walking tour of Portsmouth.
