In Memoriam: Jon Wennberg
We’d like to take a moment to remember one of the “most easy going, affable, and good natured individuals you’d ever want to meet.” Jon Wennberg was a long-time volunteer and friend of Portsmouth Historical Society who was always ready to pitch in and lend a hand, no matter the task. Our sincerest condolences to his family. He will be missed.
It’s Earth Day in the Museum Shop!
