The nation’s oldest continuously operating public museum, Pilgrim Hall Museum houses an unmatched collection of Pilgrim possessions telling the story of brave and determined men and women building lives and homes for themselves and their children in a new world. See William Bradford’s Bible, Myles Standish’s sword, the only portrait of a Pilgrim (Edward Winslow) painted from life, the cradle of New England’s first–born, Peregrine White, the great chair of William Brewster, and the earliest sampler made in America, embroidered by Myles Standish’s daughter.

The only thing we were allowed to photograph were these beautiful stained glass windows

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. Great photos, especially of the food! I love it there. It’s on my list of places to visit this fall!

  2. Wonderful photo story of Plymouth, cemetery, interior of the Aldin Home, monuments, museum and surrounding area.
    Also, those amazing Lobster rolls!

  3. That sandwich sure looks good! – And so does the Monument and Museum. I’ll have to add it to the 1,000+ things in this country that I would like to see.
