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.

Community, Conflict, Collaboration: Moving beyond Two Peoples, One Story at Plimoth Plantation

Development of an interpretive plan for all the living history sites at Plimoth Plantation for the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower voyage in 2020.

As the 400th anniversaries of the Mayflower voyage and the First Thanksgiving approach in 2020 and 2021, the Museum must reassess Plimoth Plantation's current interpretive strategy. Though highly accurate and painstaking, it is not the product of a thoughtful study of how to address these issues; rather, it is an informal amalgamation of decades of interpretation, scholarship and institutional tradition. In a changing world with technology at visitors' fingertips and always in their pockets, the Museum must address how to remain relevant and present the larger story of 17th-century New England. There is more to it than "two peoples, one story." Developing an interpretive plan that encompasses all of the Museum's living history sites--Mayflower II, the Wampanoag Homesite, and the 17th-Century English Village as well as the Plimoth Grist Mill and Craft Center--is an essential and timely step in advance of the 400th anniversaries.

Surveying the Museum's Library and Audiovisual Archive

Hiring a consultant to conduct a general preservation survey of the library and archival materials, and the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment as recommended by the consultant. The library collection consists of rare books, maps, periodicals, and reference materials that serve as a resource for researching 17th-century life, and audiovisual collections that document Plimoth Plantation's 60-year history. Particularly notable is the documentation of the changing image and perception of the Pilgrims and Wampanoag over those decades.

Plimoth Plantation requests a grant of $5,197.13 to survey the museum's library and its audio/visual archive. The grant will support a consultant's single-day visit to survey the storage conditions, policies and practices surrounding these collections. It will also support four days of time to write a report on those conditions with recommendations for improvement. The report will be used to help with long-range planning. Additionally the grant will fund the purchase of three dataloggers and software to record temperature and relative humidity in the storage areas.
