Adaptive Reuse in Portsmouth, NH at U-Haul Moving & Storage of Portsmouth

Building History

Surprisingly, the Cumberland Farms convenience store actually inherited it's name from a real farm in Cumberland, Rhode Island. Vasilios and Aphrodite Haseotes bought the Cumberland Farm and their first cow in 1939. However, it wasn't until 1962 when the first Cumberland Farms convenience store was opened. As of 2019, the Cumberland Farms convenience store chain had grown to 600 stores in 8 states. The Cumberland Farms building in Portsmouth was built in 1960 and U-Haul acquired the building in 1980. Adaptive reuse building conversions allow U-Haul to promote infill development to meet citizens’ needs while preserving the natural resources and land normally required for new construction. Adaptive reuse also allows resources to be focused on integrating environmentally thoughtful features into the existing building rather than creating waste in the form of demolition and using valuable resources for new construction.
