Boyd Auctions has been commissioned by the Trustee of the Nancy R. Beck Trust to sell at Public Auction the remaining partial contents of the Austin Street home. These items will include but not limited to Artwork, Audubon’s Prints, Silver, Clocks, Books, Pottery, Lamps, Oriental Rugs, Antique Furniture, and many Decorative items.

Civic icon and cultural leader Nancy R. Beck created projects that transformed Portsmouth from an industrial port into a vibrant historic and cultural destination. Her leadership and fundraising prowess led to the development of Strawbery Banke, the groundbreaking outdoor museum that has become the most popular historic attraction in the region. She was an early supporter of Theatre by The Sea, the first professional repertory theater in Northern New England, and renovated a vacant downtown warehouse on Bow Street into a popular theater venue. With her hand in dozens of civic initiatives from saving buildings across Portsmouth to the creation of the annual Prescott Park Arts Festival, Nancy leaves an indelible mark on the city she loved for over 60 years. Proceeds from the auction will benefit Strawbery Banke.
