The Jenney Interpretive Centre presents a 90-minute guided walk through the historic district of Plymouth. Learn about the people, places, and events of the beginning of our country as you walk along Town Brook on the same paths our forefathers walked hundreds of years ago.

The tour includes Brewster Gardens, Plymouth Rock, the historic waterfront area and the monuments, Cole’s Hill, Leyden Street, and Town Square. This interpretive tour of the historic district is given by Leo Martin, Director of Pilgrim History at The Jenney, dressed in period clothing.

The Old Colony Club presents its Annual Forefathers Day Celebration on December 23, 2019. Participants will meet at the Old Colony Club, 25 Court Street in Plymouth at 6:00AM, and then march down North Street to the top of Cole’s Hill, returning to the Club by way of Leyden and Court Street. During the event, a Proclamation will be read in honor of the Pilgrim Forefathers followed by 3 rounds of cannon fire. The celebration will be followed by a breakfast and raising of the flag.

About Forefathers Day: On December 22, 1956, an early morning celebration was reinstituted, with marching in top hats, band music, and the firing of a cannon.  Following the march, Old Colony Club members enjoyed a full breakfast and closed the morning’s events with the raising of our country’s flag.  These ceremonies were in memory of the Club’s first celebration in 1769.  The annual meeting and commemorative dinner followed in the evening.  This tradition has continued each Forefather’s Day since.
