Provincetown and the Pilgrims: From Cape Cod to Plymouth and Back
April 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster presents Provincetown and the Pilgrims: From Cape Cod to Plymouth and Back
with Cape Cod local author and historian, Don Wilding Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 1pm.
The Pilgrims are often linked to Plymouth, but their story in America began in Provincetown, and after two decades, many of them returned to the shores of the Outer Cape. Join Don during the 400th commemoration of the Pilgrims’ landing for this look back from the 1620 voyage of the Mayflower to the 1644 settlement of Nauset, as well as the story behind Provincetown’s famous Pilgrim Monument.
An award-winning writer and editor for Massachusetts newspapers for 30 years, Don pens the popular “Shore Line” history column for the Cape Codder newspaper of Orleans, and is the author of two books, “Henry Beston’s Cape Cod: The Outermost House Inspired a National Seashore,” and “A Brief History of Eastham: On the Outer Beach of Cape Cod,” from the History Press.
