Anti- witchcraft burn marks on the 17th century hearth. The marks were made with a hot metal poker as a talisman to prevent the witch from entering the house through the chimney.

Thanks to Mariella Ostroski from the Cutchogue New Suffolk Free Library for helping to create a virtual Stations of the Cross for us. We used photos taken for a 100th history project to bring you our beloved stations so lovingly purchased by "a small group of immigrants who came to the Cutchogue area from Poland in the early 1900's".

Tomorrow we will launch a new series, “Guess that Artifact.” On Mondays, we will post a clue with a close up image of an artifact from our collection. On Tuesdays, we will reveal the answer along with a little more information about the object and its significance to Jamestown’s history. Will you be playing along?

Friends,

We open today, Saturday March 14th, for the Museum’s 73rd season. In this 400th year of commemoration and remembrance, we are eager to welcome visitors to experience history in a new light.

Over the past two weeks, our talented staff have been busy preparing for your visits this year. They have been honing their 17th-century dialects; poring over primary sources; learning about the landscape of historic Patuxet and beyond; examining Indigenous and English worldviews on spirituality, land use, and diplomacy; digging into archaeological findings, and so much more!

Our Museum's beautiful campus and living history exhibits — most of which are in a natural, fresh air setting — offer room for comfortable "social distancing" while finding some respite from the news of the day. The decision to visit is, of course, a very personal choice that individuals and families have to make for themselves.

In light of the current situation with COVID-19, we’ve augmented our daily cleaning procedures with the use of stronger disinfectant products on high-touch surfaces, and more frequent cleaning; we have made hand sanitizer readily available; and have educated our staff on best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You can read more here: plimoth.org/ensuring-healthy-museum-visit

We continue to monitor updates and recommendations daily from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the CDC, and the World Health Organization. In the event of any changes to our hours or days of operations, we will post here and on www.plimoth.org where you will find the most updated information on our status.

Please consider supporting our friends and neighbors who own small businesses in the Town of Plymouth and surrounding areas during your visit. Many are practicing additional health and safety measures as well, and balancing these uncertain times with staying vital. See Plymouth Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce, and Plymouth 400 are useful resources!

#OnThisDay in 1770, the Boston Massacre occurred in front of the Old State House on State Street. The confrontation took place when British troops shot into a mob of angry Bostonians, which broke out due to underlying tensions about the recently imposed Townshend Acts (which placed tariffs on commonly used items) and colonial resentment of British military presence in Boston.

The first person to die in the massacre was a Black man (also of Natick or possibly Wampanoag descent) named Crispus Attucks. This teapot from our collection belonged to him and became a symbol of martyrdom in the name of freedom. Later, in the 1850s, it was displayed to rally support for the Abolition Movement.

And what's that silver fish, you ask? It is actually a needlework kit that belonged to Abigail Quincy, patriot Josiah Quincy's wife. It is paired here with the teapot because both were featured objects in our past exhibition "Cherished Possessions." The Quincy family was also important to the American Revolution.

What is it? Hint 17th century kitchen.

I am either very well-read or alarmingly old, because I was quite familiar with half of these slang terms from the colonial era. In fact I have probably used a couple of them on occasion. Obscure words? Not so much.

Great story about colors in early colonial homes. The photo of Prussian Blue in George Washington's home is striking. I would never have imagined it was so appropriate..
Cutchogue's latest replica for the1699 Joseph and Sarah Wickham house project, a 1950s table reconditioned and painted powder blue. This will have a green baize carpet on it for Wickham to keep his carved box and account book and Bible and write his letters and bills on. The top is about three feet deep and five feet wide.
The new splint cradle Peter Follansbee of Kingston, Massachusetts, just made for the 1699 Wickham House. Based on one at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Here is the 2nd picture
I visited the gift shop in August with my 2 brothers to see the Holland sub model and thought you would be interested in these photos our Great Uncle took in the 20s or 30s showing the model as it was displayed on the building in New Suffolk.
