Driving south, we visited the Plimoth Plantation, a 1627 English villiage, in Plymouth, MA. We visited several sections of the area. First, we walked around the Wampanoag homesite. We watched women cooking, spoke to the native people there and found shelter in a traditional wetu (house) when it started to rain.


Next, we visited the English village. We met townspeople, saw the gardens and animals and stepped inside from the rain into the timber-framed houses. A few “characters” did a great job of passing along the gossip and ideas of the day.



We also visited the crafts center and the Mayflower II, an operational reproduction of the original Mayflower. We couldn’t see Plimoth Rock – the rock was truly under construction.
