The Tate House Museum and the National Society of Colonial Dames in the State of Maine invite you to celebrate the 400 th anniversary of the Mayflower’s arrival at Plymouth on December 18, 1620 with speaker Captain Whit Perry, Director of Maritime Preservation and Operations at Plimoth Patuxet (PP), formerly Plimoth Plantation.
Captain Perry recently oversaw a three-year restoration project of MAYFLOWER II, the Mayflower replica that received over 25 million visitors from the time of its docking at PP in 1957 and 2016. Perry also commanded the restored vessel from Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut (site of the restoration work) on her voyage home to Plymouth last year.
He will show brand new video and documentary photographs taken by the restoration crew while describing the challenges of historic restoration, sharing the exhilaration of sailing Mayflower II, and highlighting the role of the Mayflower in America’s colonial history.
