Portsmouth Ohio

Where Southern Hospitality Begins

Main Street

Our downtown has a nationally accredited Main Street program.  Main Street, Portsmouth: offering many resources to build and expand business in the central district including business counseling and training and a partnership with the city to offer loans, grants, and tax abatements to property and business owners.

We invite you to explore the rich history of Downtown Portsmouth in the historic Boneyfiddle district or take in the spectacular Flood Wall Murals on display along Front Street.  You'll also find over twenty properties that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  There's an assortment of antique shops, clothing, pharmacies, lodging, gift and specialty shops, and restaurants along the streets of downtown.

You can visit Southern Ohio Museum and enjoy its beautiful galleries, paintings, arts, and classes, or stop by the Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce or the Portsmouth Scioto County Convention and Visitors Center to learn about all the opportunities that are available in Portsmouth.  Portsmouth-a proud Main Street Community.
