“Family – the Cornerstone of Society”
The difference between the Pilgrims and any other colony of the time, including Jamestown, was that the Pilgrims came as families to form their community. They built their society from the family up to the governing body, not the other way around. Here we show how family values build a strong society. Character formed in the home translates into strong members of society.
Education was very important to the Pilgrims!
“The Pursuit of Happiness”
Our Declaration of Independence states – ..that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. We are not endowed with happiness, but with the pursuit of happiness. We ask the question, through all their hardships and troubles were the Pilgrims pursuing happiness and did they find it? Visit the museum and discover what Liberties we think they were searching for.
Our newest exhibit will focus on the unknown hero’s of the Revolutionary and Civil War. Learn about Plymouth’s role in the underground railroad and the unknown African American hero’s involved in this movement.
