Several Plymouth organizations, including Plymouth 400 Inc., received funding from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to complete restoration projects in preparation of the 400th anniversary in 2020. Governor Duval Patrick and Senate President Therese Murray visited two of the beneficiaries of these funds yesterday; Spire Center for the Performing Arts and Pilgrim Hall Museum; to see the progress that has been made and plans for future renovations.
In a press release, P400 Executive Director Michele Pecoraro said, “We are grateful to Senate President Murray for her support of Plymouth’s historic and cultural treasures. With her support, and the support of Governor Patrick, organizations such as Pilgrim Hall Museum, Plimoth Plantation, Spire Center, and Plymouth Center for the Arts have been able to restore and improve their facilities and priceless art, which will gain Plymouth greater recognition as a cultural destination and result in and economic boost as we approach 2020.”
State funds have been used to restore Henry Sargent’s 1822 painting, “Landing of the Pilgrims” at Pilgrim Hall Museum; repurpose an underutilized synagogue to become Spire Center for the Performing Arts; repair and preserve the Mayflower II; expand Plymouth Center for the Arts; and plan Plymouth’s 400th anniversary commemorative programs and events.
