The Plimoth Plantation Museum was started in 1947 in an effort to preserve the story of a new English colony at Plymouth.  The depiction of a 17th Century English Village was added in 1959.

The original site of the re-created village was about 2.5 miles north of the museum.  The buildings and houses  have been built in the same manner as was the custom at the time and are based on research and guesswork.

The re-creation has been built based on what the colonists village at Plymouth would have looked like seven years after the arrival of the Mayflower.  The village at the museum is about one-third of the actual size of the colony, however, the houses and garden plots are full size.  

The images below are of the 17th Century Village re-creation at the Museum. The buildings are open to the public for visitation.  Role playing staff are in attendance and speaking in character, describe life as it was.

The buildings were made of wood timbers with a thick thatched roof or clapboards.  Inside, there was an hearth with an open chimney.  Walls were made of wattle and daub -- interwoven sticks that were plastered with a mixture of clay, sand and straw.  The outside of each building had a sheathing of planks.

World Cultures

 

"People of 
different religions 
and cultures 
live side by side
 in almost every part|
of the world, 
and most of us have overlapping identities 
which unite us 
with very different groups.  
We can love what we are,
 without hating what 
- and who - 
we are not.  
We can thrive 
in our own tradition, 
even as we learn 
from others, 
and come to respect 
their teachings."

~Kofi Annan ~
former 
Secretary-General 
of the United Nations

 



 

"Preservation of 
one's own culture 
does not require
 contempt 
or disrespect
 for other cultures."

~ Cesar Chavez ~
American Activist 
and Labour Organizer.  
Founder of the National Farm Workers Association
(1927-1993)

 


 

 

"It is the mark 
of the cultured man 
that he is aware 
of the fact 
that equality 
is an ethical 
and not a biological principle."

~ Ashley Montagu ~
British-American anthropologist
1905 - 1999

 

 

"We may have 
different religions, 
different languages, 
different coloured skin, 
but we all belong 
to one human race."

~ Kofi Annan ~
Ghanian Diplomat, 
7th UN Secretary-General, 
2001 Nobel Peace Prize Winner

 

 

"We have 
the ability to achieve, 
if we master 
the necessary goodwill,
 a common global society 
blessed with a shared culture 
of peace 
that is nourished by 
the ethnic, 
national and 
local diversities
 that enrich our lives."

~ Mahnaz Afkhami ~
Iranian-American 
Human rights activist.

 

 

 

"Difference 
is of the essence 
of humanity.  
Difference
 is an accident of birth 
and it should therefore 
never be the source
 of hatred 
or conflict.  
The answer to difference
 is to respect it.  
Therein lies a most 
fundamental principle of peace:  respect for diversity."

~ John Hume ~
Irish Politician, 
1998 Nobel 
Peace Prize Winner, 
1999 Defender of 
Democracy Award, 
2001 Gandhi Peace Prize
