Along the Shores of Change

Implementation of a new interpretive plan for Plimoth Plantation to reflect the full spectrum of experiences within the world of 17th-century New England.

Plimoth Plantation requests a Chairman’s Special Award in implementation support for Along the Shores of Change, a multi-year and Museum-wide reinterpretation initiative that transforms the techniques and broadens the stories that Plimoth Plantation uses to communicate Plymouth Colony’s seminal role in shaping America. This new approach explores the Native transnational and pan-European nature of the human landscape in 17th-century New England. With NEH support, the project will organize Plimoth Plantation’s education programs, craft preservation efforts, living history exhibits, and staff training around the Museum’s first comprehensive interpretive plan. Funding would enable the re-installation of galleries and living history sites, development of new multicultural scenarios and hands-on programs, re-examination of educational services, and advancement of a 4-year course of study that transforms staff from interpreters and guides to multi-skilled living history educators.
