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
Antiquarian Summer Fair

Attic treasures, jewelry, homemade goodies, and bargains galore are some of the delights of this old-fashioned New England fair, held under a big tent on our sweeping lawn overlooking Plymouth harbor. Gates open promptly at 10 am and browsers are welcome, free of charge! Can't wait to see what's on offer? Special 9:30 am Early Bird Admission is $10 per person.
Plymouth Poppies Project
Community members are invited to join the Antiquarian Society in creating a special installation to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I on November 11th (Veterans Day). We are planting a field of knit or crocheted poppies on one or more of our historic properties as a visual tribute to all those from Plymouth County who have served in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. This project is inspired by the 5000 Poppies initiative (https://5000poppies.wordpress.com/). If you are interested in making and donating poppies for the installation, please contact PAS Trustee Denise DeMore (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information.
Our Hedge UpFront Campaign is underway. Learn more here.
