It is an injustice to try erase the memories and legacies of the people who lived in Ida Barbour from 1955 to 2003 when it was no longer occupied. Ida Barbour was a breeding place for some of Portsmouth top politicians,athletes, educators,police officers,administrators and great citizens. Sure,this low income neighborhood had of problems but overall we made outstanding contributions to the Portsmouth community.
