We didn't do a tour although we heard it is exciting. The people were very friendly and the locale is quiet and peaceful. A great place to take pictures.

Great place to go back in time and discover Plimoth. Beautiful walks along the paths with the waterway leading to the ocean. Free parking.

Visited here and learned about different kinds of corn, and it’s uses. Also learned how the mill operated. The Millers were very friendly and attentive. They made sure we understood the process and kept asking if we had any questions. Purchased a couple items in...More
