Join Stephen O’Neill, Executive Director of the Hanover Historical Society, for this free virtual program on the life of Peregrine White (1620-1704). The son of William and Susanna White, Peregrine was born on the Mayflower while it was anchored in Provincetown Harbor. His life paralleled the growth of Plymouth Colony, from the early years of its settlement to its absorption by Massachusetts Bay in 1691. Mr. O’Neill is the author of a new biography of Peregrine White, published by the Marshfield Historical Society in 2020.
Every first Saturday of the month Pilgrim Hall Museum and the Plymouth Antiquarian Society will present a free virtual tour program of Burial Hill and other historic sites in Plymouth. Following a decade of partnership on Burial Hill Tours, PAS and PHM are delighted to announce a new thematic 2021 series, exploring “firsts” in local history.
