About Portsmouth

Portsmouth is one of three communities on Aquidneck Island. This fast growing town has a highly skilled, highly educated population of 17,149 (2000), 74% of whom live in single family houses. Surrounded on three sides by water, temperatures are moderated year round by ocean breezes and the 132 sq. mi. Narragansett Bay.

Established in 1638 by Anne Hutchinson, Portsmouth is the first town in the nation established by a woman, and, according to many, was the first true democracy in America. The Portsmouth Compact of 1638 is the first authentic guarantee of civil and religious freedom in the new world.

The public school system is one of the best in the State. If you prefer a private education for your child, the Portsmouth Abbey, St. Philomena's, and the Pennfield School provide excellent alternatives.

Portsmouth is centrally located on the eastern seaboard between the major metropolitan areas of New York and Boston. 1.3 million people live within 25 miles; 3.3 million within 50 miles. More than 65% of New England's population lives within a 75 mile radius. 80 million people with a combined income of $1.6 trillion live within a 500 mile radius.
