Throwback Thursday: Plimoth Plantation

Our #tbt blog today comes from my Property Director Mike Fiore, who spent Thanksgiving Day last week with his family at Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts, exploring events that took place some time ago. Plimoth Plantation is a living museum that presents visitors with two re-created settlements from the 1620s - a Native American Wampanoag homesite, and a village established by English colonists, who later became known as Pilgrims. The site is not far from where the Mayflower II reproduction is moored in Plymouth Harbor, just north of Cape Cod. In the fall of 1621, the Pilgrims celebrated their first bountiful harvest. More than 200 years later, in the mid-1800s, that feast becomes known as the First Thanksgiving.
