First Saturday History Tour

The First Immigrant Neighborhoods in Plymouth

In this virtual program Dr. Anne Mason, Executive Director of the Plymouth Antiquarian Society, will explore the development of Plymouth in the 19th century, focusing on the growth of immigrant neighborhoods. Where did Irish and German families live? How did Plymouth change with these new arrivals?

Visit the Plymouth Antiquarian Society’s Facebook page for the free livestream at 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 7th. 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 as well.

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.
