First Saturday History Tour

First Visitors to Plymouth & the Creation of a Tourist Town

Dr. Anne Mason, Executive Director of the Plymouth Antiquarian Society, discusses first impressions of Plymouth, from 17th-century visitors to 19th-century tourists. How did outsiders shape the community we know today?

You do not need to have a Facebook account to access the program. The recording will be shared on our website for on-demand viewing after the event.

About the First Saturday History Tour Series

2021 marks the 400th anniversary of the first full year of European settlement at Plymouth. On the first Saturday of each month the Pilgrim Society and the Plymouth Antiquarian Society will present a series of free, virtual programs exploring “firsts” in local history, some well-known and others less familiar. Stepping into a new decade of partnership, the two organizations will broadcast thematic tours of Burial Hill and other historic sites in Plymouth.
