Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts provides a chance to catch up with the settlers who came across on the Mayflower and later ships to establish a community here.

We stopped to chat with a few of Plimoth’s residents:

I am happy here. I was a printer in England, now I am a farmer. In England I couldn’t follow my religion and in Holland I couldn’t be an Englishman. Here I can be both an Englishman and true to God.

- ExplorationVacation.netThere is plenty here. I only wish that Plimoth had a mill – that would be a blessing.

Happy Thanksgiving!
