Plimoth Plantation, founded in 1947, is a living history museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts, that attempts to replicate the original settlement of the Plymouth Colony by English colonists who later became known as the Pilgrims. They were among the first people who emigrated to America to seek religious separation from the Church of England. The re-creations are based on a wide variety of first-hand and second-hand records, accounts, articles, and period paintings and artifacts. The museum conducts ongoing research and scholarship, including historical archaeological excavation and curation locally and abroad.
