Pilgrim Hall Museum
Plymouth has a very special place in American History. Colonists from England took the
Mayflower across the Atlantic Ocean and settled at Plymouth in 1620. The first Thanksgiving
feast was held at the new colony of Plymouth in 1621. As the oldest town
in the country, Plymouth is sometimes referred to as "America's
Home Town." Despite this early excitement, Plymouth remained a fairly
quiet town for much of its history. Shipbuilding, fishing, and cordage
have been Plymouth's chief industries.
Today, Plymouth is home to roughly 60,000 people. This Southern Massachusetts
port doesn't see a lot of shipbuilding these days, but tourism is
alive and well. Every year, thousands of people flock to Plymouth to see
Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower II, and the location of the first Pilgrim
settlement. Pilgrim Hall Museum, located just a few blocks from Captain
John Whale Watching & Fishing Tours, is the oldest museum in the country.
