Lunch & Learn – Plimoth Plantation’s Lunchtime Lecture Series
Thursday, June 7, 12:00-1:00PM
The Winslows were an up-and-coming family in colonial New England, who contributed to local politics, government and the military. While the family is fairly well documented, what about the servants and slaves who helped run their households? Join Dr. Karin Goldstein as she presents: The Winslow Family & Their Servants. Lecture will begin promptly at noon in the Accomack Building. A brief Q& A will follow. Participants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch. FREE.

Who We Are
Plimoth Plantation is a not-for-profit museum supported by admissions, contributions, grants and generous volunteers.
What We Do
Plimoth Plantation, a bicultural museum, offers powerful personal encounters with history built on thorough research about the Wampanoag People and the Colonial English community in the 1600s. Our exhibits, programs, live interpreters, and historic settings encourage a new level of understanding about present-day issues affecting communities around the world.
The visitor experience is at the heart of our work. The setting, the staff and a compelling approach to history combine to provide a memorable visitor experience. We are successful when a satisfied visitor recommends us to family and friends.
