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.
