ANTIQUARIAN SOCIETY (PAS)
The Plymouth Antiquarian
Society, founded in 1919, is Plymouth's largest organization dedicated
to preserving historic houses and landmarks. The Society owns and maintains
three historic houses from different centuries: the
1677 Harlow House, the 1749
Spooner House, and the 1809 Hedge House,
and an ancient Native American site, Sacrifice
Rock. Since 1920, PAS has welcomed the public to its historic properties
for tours, exhibits, and programs. The historic houses tell the story
of everyday life in Plymouth from the mid-1600s to the present, with period
rooms featuring early American furnishings and domestic artifacts. The
Society also offers a seasonal calendar of
special events and programs on
local history. Membership is open to the
