Just a Short Stroll from Plymouth Rock!
The Mayflower Society House
4 Winslow St., Plymouth, Massachusetts
Across the street and up the hill from Plymouth Rock is the historic Mayflower Society House – an 18th century home originally built by Edward Winslow, great-grandson of the Pilgrim Edward Winslow. The story of the Society House extends across three centuries. Experience its rich history on a tour where you will learn about the many influential Plymouth families who lived here and preserved this home over the years.
Hear fascinating stories about the struggles of the Winslow family – Loyalists during the Revolutionary era; stand where Ralph Waldo Emerson and Lydian Jackson exchanged vows; relive the great restoration in 1898 by famous New England architect Joseph Everett Chandler and imagine the hive of activity this peaceful house would have been when it was used as a Red Cross headquarters during World War II.

The house will be open on November 17th & 18th for the Thanksgiving Parade Weekend and November 23rd & 24th for Thanksgiving Weekend.
