  • [Pictures] Plimoth Plantation - Pictures

    My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!

    Plimoth Plantation photographed in May 2009:
    This delightful gated attraction is about 30 miles South of Boston, Massachusetts and is a historically accurate recreation of the earliest years of the settlement of the real town of Plymouth just a few miles away. It consists of a large modern visitor center, a modern demonstration center for crafts, a nature boardwalk, a rare-breeds livestock barn, a recreated native American homesite, and the recreated town itself. This townsite is located on a sloping rise with views of nearby Cape Cod Bay, just like the site for the real town, and the property is surrounded by woods that recall the original settlement's landscape.

    Henry Hornblower II Visitor Center:





    Wampanoag Homesite:
    This clearing in the woods recreates a local native American home from the time of the 1600's. Costumed interpreters who are native American demonstrate tasks from everyday life, including weaving, hollowing out trunks to make canoes, pottery making, and even games among many others.















    1627 English Village:
    The main attraction is this recreated village from the time 7 years after the Mayflower landed. Costumed interpreters also roam this area and demonstrate tasks from everyday life, but in this case they are 'actors' who stay in character and speak with the grammar and mindset of the English colonists, which makes for very educational and engaging conversations as they are encountered during the informal exploration of the site. Interiors can be entered freely and are furnished accurately as well, making for a truly transportive rustic experience.













































    Mayflower II:
    A few miles from the attraction, this seaworthy recreation of the famous ship is operated by the same museum and also features costumed interpreters and is docked in the actual harbor of Plymouth.







    Plymouth:
    The original townsite is still occupied and is a charming small town along the harbor filled with many historic buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, although only a few from the 17th century remain. The famous Plymouth Rock engraved with the date 1620 sits on the harbor's small beach and is enshrined in a later classically inspired temple-like shelter.































    Enjoy!
