About History in Progress: Burial Hill Tours

The Plymouth Antiquarian Society and Pilgrim Hall Museum continue their partnership in a free public tour series of Plymouth’s historic Burial Hill for the 2022 season. This year’s program is returning to a live, in-person format for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic. A limited series of four themed history tours will be offered in person at Plymouth’s ancient burying ground at 1 p.m. on the first Saturday of every other month from April to October. The event will not be simultaneously streamed or broadcast live; however, an enhanced and audio-corrected digital version of each tour will premiere online the month following each live event. Visit our Burial Hill page for more information.

No reservations required for individuals and families. May involve strenuous walking on steep hillside. Severe weather may cancel tour; check our Facebook pages and websites for updates.
