    how old is strawberry banke?

      Strawbery Banke is over 300 years old! The oldest house you can visit in the neighborhood was built around 1695. Before the British settlers arrived and began building here, the land we call Strawbery Banke was traditionally used by Pennacook and Abenaki people, who were both part of the Wabanaki Confederacy by the time European settlers arrived.
