State senator donates $300K to Strawbery Banke

A New Hampshire state senator has made a $300,000 donation to the Strawbery Banke Museum in Portsmouth to construct an expanded visitor’s center.

Martha Fuller Clark, a Portsmouth Democrat, said she hopes the project, which includes a new cafe along with 50 percent more space in the lecture hall, will bring more people to the 10-acre outdoor history museum.

Fuller Clark’s mother, Marion Fuller, was one of the founders of Strawbery Banke, which is a National Historic Landmark.

The Portsmouth Herald reported that Fuller Clark, speaking at a reception Sunday, said people have no idea how difficult it is with the recession financially to sustain the museum.
