Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse (New Hampshire) has been honored by the United States Secretary of the Interior with placement on the National Register of Historic Places. The National Register of Historic Places is the nation's official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation. The lighthouse is listed in the National Register along with the associated keeper's dwelling (1872) and oil house (1903).

This is exciting news for Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse because it brings deserved attention to the lighthouse, and also because it means the organization is now eligible for certain grants that require National Register status.

Thanks to the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources and the U.S. Coast Guard, who played major roles in making this happen.
