Plimouth Plantation

We have several “living-history” museums around here…I go to Old Sturbridge Village almost every year, as it’s only about an hour away.

But I’ve been wanting to visit Plimoth Plantation for a couple of years.  It’s about 3 hours away…so on Friday I met up with my friend Laura and her cutie-patootie daughter Jade. 

It is set in a beautiful area of Massachusetts…but it is not the original site..

You walk through the village…some of the houses are occupied, some are not…although most of the houses are one room, there were two or three with 2 rooms…obviously the wealthier inhabitants…

This home had two rooms, plus two lofts…but the other room was crowed, so I did not get a picture..


Jade and Laura trying out a most uncomfortable bed…and one of the gardens


Tomorrow I’ll post the pictures from the Native Village….
