Presentation by Dr. Meg Mott

"What does the 1st Amendment ask of Us?"

The First Amendment protects our most basic freedoms, none more important than Freedom of Speech. But what do we do about speech that threatens to destroy the social fabric? If hate speech codes are unconstitutional, it falls on citizens to find other ways to counter hateful speech. We’ll explore what capacities citizens need to preserve freedom and the social fabric.

CURRENT EXHIBIT   2022 Season

Made in Plymouth, NH - Yesterday to Today

Many people think of Plymouth as a sleepy college town, but at points in its past it was a hive of industry, manufacturing goods that were shipped across the country and around the world.

The Plymouth Historical Society's newest exhibit features over a dozen industries -- large and small -- from Plymouth's founding to today. While some goods were common items that were made in most towns, others were quite unique and surprising. Come and discover the history hidden in you own backyard! The exhibit displays include brief narratives, interesting photos and actual artifacts when possible.
