New England Heritage Days 2014


Mark you calendar and plan to join us on October 1st and 2nd in Plymouth, MA for HOME's New England Heritage Days 2014!

Historian, Leo Martin of the Jenny Museum will be our tour guide as we learn about our amazing Christian Heritage from this time period in history. An historic waterfront tour will include Brewster Gardens, Plymouth Rock, and Burial Hill. The "Forefathers Monument Tour" will stop at the National Monument to the Forefathers. There participants will learn what each of the five statues represent and how the story of the Pilgrims' faith is depicted on the monument. The "Business Not as Usual Tour" tells of the economic struggles of the Pilgrims, and the beginnings of free trade, capitalism and industry in our country..  

We will also visit the Pilgrim Hall Museum for a guided tour and "treasure hunt" for the children and The Mayflower II and Plimouth Plantation (including the Wamponaug Village). Join us for all or part of our historic journey into America's past.
