On Saturday, September 20th join other members for a historical experience and meal that you won't soon forget! The owners of The Stephen Bryant House, Bob and Carol Quindley, have graciously given the museum permission to invite members to their incredible home, which is believed to be the oldest house in Plympton, for a very special tour. The home is fully furnished in exquisite 17th-century style using both reproductions and authentic antiques. Upon entering the Bryant House you will find yourself transported back in time, but the entire house is fully functional for modern day living. This tour has been thoughtfully designed with Museum Members in mind, and Museum staff will also be on hand to answer questions.
Bob and Carol purchased the home in 1991, and immediately began the process of restoring the home. Their passion for the past can be seen in the placement of every object, from a 17th-century gateleg table to bed hangings personally researched and created by Carol for an 18th- century press bred. In one bedroom, a change of period clothing hangs close by an open bible as though the occupant had just stepped away...
The Dining Experience....
Upon finishing the tour and returning to Plimoth Plantation, a historical dining experience begins. A three-course 17th-century meal, will commence with servings of “cheate” bread and sweet butter, fried chicken (from a recipe of the period), mussels “seeth'd” with parsley and beer. In true homage to the meal and the home’s history, Mayflower Brewing will be on hand with complimentary beer tastings.
