ANTIQUARIAN SOCIETY (PAS)
The Plymouth Antiquarian
Society, founded in 1919, is Plymouth's largest organization dedicated
to preserving historic houses and landmarks. The Society owns and maintains
three historic houses from different centuries: the
1677 Harlow House, the 1749
Spooner House, and the 1809 Hedge House,
and an ancient Native American site, Sacrifice
Rock. Since 1920, PAS has welcomed the public to its historic properties
for tours, exhibits, and programs. The historic houses tell the story
of everyday life in Plymouth from the mid-1600s to the present, with period
rooms featuring early American furnishings and domestic artifacts. The
Society also offers a seasonal calendar of
special events and programs on
local history. Membership is open to the
Downton Abbey Fundraiser
Burial Hill Tours: History in Progress
Saturday, May 10th — 6:30 to 9:30 pm Rain date Saturday May 17th
Direct your chauffeur to drop you at the Hedge House Museum, 126 Water Street, where the festivities begin at 6:30 pm. Socialize over snazzy cocktails and savory noshes in the Rose Briggs Garden until private trolleys whisk you off to the elegant Litchfield manor home on Warren Avenue for dinner, dessert, music and dancing. Enjoy delectable English savories at poolside and in the library, drinks on the piazza, and a magnificent dinner buffet featuring beef tenderloin, poached salmon, exotic kedgeree, and more. Proper attire gently encouraged – dress as a swanky nob or a sassy servant – good heavens, even as an American! – from any Downton Abbey period, from the Edwardian era to the Jazz Age, or just come as you are. Trolleys run continuously throughout the evening to deliver you back to your motorcar at your convenience.
