Annual Appeal Campaign

We couldn't do it without you!

The Friends of the Plymouth Historical Museum (a.k.a. Plymouth Historical Society) is privately funded and receives no government support for its mission of providing historical education and maintaining the Plymouth Historical Museum. The Museum has nine part-time staff members to run a 26,000 square foot building. Utilities expenses are more than $30,000 per year. Money is always appreciated to help keep the doors open so visitors can experience Plymouth community history. Donations are sent directly to the Plymouth Historical Society, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and all donations are tax deductible. If your donation is $100 or more, you will be acknowledged on our donor wall in the stairwell leading to the lower level. We appreciate your support! 

Don't Waver--Buy a Paver!

Museum Landscaping Campaign

4x8 paver

8x8 paver

The Main Street sidewalk in front of the Museum has been transformed into a memorial walkway complete with sponsored benches and engraved brick pavers as a result of the Plymouth Historical Museum’s Landscaping Campaign. Bricks can be purchased for $100 each (4"x8" paver) or $250 each (8"x8" paver) to remember family members, Friends of the Plymouth Historical Museum members, friends, or people from Plymouth’s history. Please also fill out this form if you are purchasing a brick, and email, mail or fax us the form after you pay for the brick. Thanks!
