Historical Locations in Plymouth, Massachusetts - Plymouth Rock, Burial Hill & More

Historical Locations in Plymouth, Massachusetts - Plymouth Rock, Burial Hill & More
right now we are in

Plymouth

Massachusetts

which for those who don't know is the first settlement established by the pilgrims in 1620 there are many

historical

locations

in

Plymouth

and I figured rather than make a bunch of short videos on each location why not make one big video with many

locations

so let's wander around America's hometown and go check out some pretty cool

historical

locations

in

Plymouth

Massachusetts

when the pilgrims left England for the new world they set sail
historical locations in plymouth massachusetts   plymouth rock burial hill more
aboard the Mayflower and usually the Mayflower is dock right here but as you can see there's no Mayflower anywhere to be seen and that's because from what I've heard it's being refurbished for the town's 400th anniversary over at the little ticket booth area for the Mayflower they actually have some information about where the Mayflower is and it's actually in Mystic Connecticut so if you want to go check out the Mayflower go down there or wait till 2019 and then it's
gonna be back in

Plymouth

if you're wondering what these pieces of wood are inside the case these are actual pieces of the damaged wood that they are repairing on the Mayflower that's the reason why it's no longer in

Plymouth

Harbor it's being repaired because all the wood is rotting away after their long journey across the Atlantic Ocean the pilgrims are said to have landed on

Plymouth

Rock

there's really no evidence to prove that this was the actual

rock

where they landed
so basically it's just an ordinary then we gotta go the

rock

s fake what do you mean the

rock

s fee I'm sorry to break it to you but it's a lie inside this structure down in this pit is where you'll find the

Plymouth

Rock

that's where everyone says the Pilgrims landed they say they stepped on that

rock

like I said I don't know how true that is but there's the

Plymouth

Rock

that people come from all over to see right there as you can see The

Rock

says 1620 right there on
the top symbolizing the year the pilgrims arrived in

Plymouth

Massachusetts

it's crazy to think that people from all over the world come to see the

Plymouth

Rock

and it is literally just a

rock

it's used as a symbol for the pilgrims no pilgrim actually stepped on that

rock

well maybe the pilgrims stepped on the

rock

but it has no

historical

significance at all it just blows my mind people like worship that

Rock

and it's literally just a

rock

just a short walk away from the

Plymouth

Rock

is a statue of

Plymouth

's first Governor William Bradford there he is embodied in stone and there's uh there's some information about him you can't really see because of the glare of the Sun but there's some information about William Bradford right behind the area where the

rock

is displayed is a giant

Hill

known as Cole's

hill

and at the top of Cole's

Hill

as a statue of the Wampanoag satyam named moose Emiquon here's the statue of zeus Emiquon commonly
referred to as Massasoit it but from my understanding Massasoit is

more

of a title than a name it would be like going up to the president and just calling him mr. president like not knowing his name is actually Donald Trump so the pilgrims thought his name was Massasoit but in reality his name was Osama Qin according to my research if you rub the great sathyam's foot you get good luck got a rub it for good luck here we'll go up and rub it as you can see there are some rub marks from
historical locations in plymouth massachusetts   plymouth rock burial hill more
people rubbing his foot so oh well you get some good luck one interesting fact about Cole's

Hill

is that back in the 1920s they found a bunch of bones buried in the

hill

and they put all the bones inside this giant sarcophagus what's crazy is the bones actually used to be housed above

Plymouth

Rock

do you just start a dead person Costel bury on each side of the monument there are engravings honoring those who died during the first winter here in

Plymouth

a lot of the pilgrims were not
buried on coles

hill

many of them were buried here on

burial

hill

as the name States it's a cemetery where the pilgrims are buried this is also the place where they built their first fort this old beat-up sign gives you a little bit of history all about

burial

hill

if you want to pause it and can make out the words feel free to pause and read a little bit

more

about

burial

hill

as we make our way to the top of a

hill

we come across this cool map that shows Cape Cod it actually points out
that we're right there this is the the

Plymouth

Bay Area and then the tip of Cape Cod so way down here the map looks like it's been graffiti'd over the years but you can still kind of make out that that's Cape Cod trash is that an abandoned abandoned mausoleum found pilgrim dead body gone william bradford experiment abandoned abandoned pilgrim mausoleum there it is you heard of here first folks abandoned pilgrim mausoleum found william bradford gone gone first Thanksgiving I
don't I don't know let's let's continue on up

burial

Hill

many of the people buried in this cemetery are not actual pilgrims that came over on the Mayflower but there are a few most notably is the grave of William Bradford we saw his statue earlier in the video and now we are seeing his final resting place this is the grave of William Bradford the first governor in the new world here's a little little blurb about him on this memorial come in places like this really get you
thinking four hundred years ago this man came over here to the new world because he wanted to be free and Here I am four hundred years later being freed doing what I want all because people like him made a difference in the world I guess I'm getting pretty like deep right now but all because of a few people we're able to do whatever we want today we're able to go on adventures show cool things make youtube videos go basically do whatever we want all because pilgrims like William
Bradford came over here and then you know you had stuff like the American Revolution and you still have people fighting for our country till this day trying to make a difference I don't know that was really deep usually stuff we don't do on the channel but once I saw this like I just I don't know it kind of hit me anyways let's continue on wandering around

Plymouth

just down the

hill

from

burial

Hill

is the Jennie grist mill hey that rhymed I'm a poet I didn't even know
historical locations in plymouth massachusetts   plymouth rock burial hill more
it I can make a rhyme any time yeah I know that was really corny anyways let's get into the history of this place the mill was built by a colonist named John Jenny to grind up corn to make cornmeal this is a recreation of the original mill and was built in the 1970s whereas the original mill was built in 1636 you can get an inside peek if we come right over here this will actually show us the inside of the grist mill since I don't really want to pay for a tour we could stick the camera
right up to the glass and hopefully we can get a peek oh yeah you can see some of the cornmeal sitting right up there yeah you can't see much but you can sort of see inside the grist mill right there you can get up close and personal with the mill if we come down to this like observation looking area we can get real close to the mill see how it works all this water floods right in there turns the big waterwheel and then inside that building is where they grind up the corn to make the
cornmeal they also have a little shop down here where you can actually buy the cornmeal made inside the grist mill you can even pay a fee to take a tour of the grist mill as well as some
