The chronicle of the Mayflower Pilgrims has inspired millions of people from around the world to visit Plymouth, Massachusetts, the first English settlement in New England. For hundreds of years, people have come to gaze upon Plymouth Rock where "it all began" in December, 1620 - and to take home some tangible reminder of their visit. Whether as personal treasures or gifts for those who remained at home, a great variety of Plymouth souvenirs have been eagerly acquired over the years. Ranging from a "piece of the rock" itself to simple objects with "Plymouth, Mass." stamped on them, see tokens of remembrance that have served generations as evidence they indeed followed in Pilgrim footsteps. Perhaps you will recognize one of these reminders of Plymouth in your own collection.
