Join Dr. Anne Mason, Executive Director of the Plymouth Antiquarian Society, for this free virtual program on the women’s suffrage movement in Plymouth. The 19th Amendment secured women’s right to vote in 1920. Who were the first women to vote in Plymouth? Hear their stories and locate the only memorials dedicated to their lives: their gravestones.
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.
Connecting to the Program
Visit the Antiquarian Society’s Facebook page to tune in at 1 PM on Saturday, March 6. You do not need to have a Facebook account to view the livestream. A recording will be available for viewing after the event on the Society’s website.
About the First Saturday History Tour Series
The Pilgrim Society and the Plymouth Antiquarian Society are pleased to announce a new thematic series that builds on their popular Burial Hill Tours. 2021 marks the 400th anniversary of the first full year of European settlement at Plymouth. On the first Saturday of each month the two organizations will present a free virtual program exploring “firsts” in local history, some well-known and others less familiar. Tour Burial Hill and other historic sites in Plymouth via livestream. For details on upcoming tours and the recording of February’s “First Gravestones” tour, click here.
