  • If you're into historical sites this is a great one, antiques, Sparrow House is one of the oldest house in Plymouth, more like a museum, it's great to check out if you're in the area, takes about an hour to walk around and check out everything.
  • My favorite place to buy beautiful, unique, made-in-America jewelry, handbags, ceramics. Best gift wrapping and loveliest staff on the South Shore of Massachusetts.
  • Such a wonderful trip back into the history of old Plimoth
  • A true relic. Jenny pond and grist mill are here, too.
  • Very nice place with the old water mill. Here is shown how the water mill itself and for children there is also a lot to the try out.
