Located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Pilgrim Hall was built in 1824 to preserve the memories and the objects of those intrepid Pilgrims who helped colonize the region beginning in 1620. Some of their treasures include William Bradford's bible, Myles Standish's sword, and the earliest sampler made in America. On their website, visitors can use the "Pilgrim Story" area to read first-hand accounts of the first Thanksgiving and find thoughtful answers to questions like "Who were the Pilgrims?" There's even more detail in the "Beyond the Pilgrim Story", which combines artifacts with historical information to illuminate the Pilgrim and Native American story up to 1692, when the Plymouth Colony came to a formal end as an independent entity. The area features a number of wills from those who came over on the Mayflower, along with biographies. The site is rounded out with information about those wishing to visit the Hall.
