Strawberry Banke

Strawberry Banke is an amazing museum in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It was certainly one of the biggest highlights of our family vacation, for me. It's the only place I've ever seen where you can tour a house representing different periods of American history in the same neighborhood. And the details are very well cared for. (Examples are the bird house shown and the plant identification.)

The certificate is for a Cuban lottery ticket from the early 1800s, I think. (I forgot the story behind that.)
