For Susan Wentworth and Ron Reilly's blended family, Plymouth is more than part of our country's history. It's the site of countless lacrosse games and Thanksgiving traditions.

A fascinating aspect of our town is its mix of historic locations and modern amenities. It's not unusual to see a chain restaurant down the street from a famous place like the Jenney Grist Mill, a re-creation of the country's first mill from 1636. This fully working site, which is powered by water from a brook in Brewster Gardens, has educational storytelling, people dressed in period costumes, and corn-grinding.
Tours tracing the Pilgrims' footsteps include the mill, the place where Plymouth's first church once stood, burial grounds, and more. I love hearing stories about the past and seeing where so many historical moments occurred.
