Plimoth Plantation opens Colonial House exhibit, where houses will be reconstructed.
Plimoth Plantation, the museum in Massachusetts where the Colonial House cast trained for two weeks prior to filming, has opened an exhibit based upon the show. As part of Setting the Scene for PBS’s Colonial House, visitors “have a chance to pick up similar tools and help reconstruct two houses used in the filming of the” series,” the Providence Journal reports. Other activities “include setting the sails on the replica Mayflower II, learning to sail or row a period boat and baking the 17th-century way. Lessons in the dialect of the era, navigation, basic embroidery, and 17th-century navigation will be offered, along with a chance to load and unload a ship with heavy wooden casks filled with provisions.” You can also stay overnight on the plantation, possibly in the two reconstructed houses if they’re finished in time.
+ also: tragedy-wracked Wyers family says “God allowed them to be a part of the series.”
