In the history cases … Old Colony Memorial

The foundation’s preservation committee works with Julie Burrie (the library’s archivist) to keep the history display cases full of educational exhibits and materials that celebrate life in Plymouth over the years.

Our Spring 2023 exhibit pays tribute to the 200th Anniversary of the Old Colony Memorial, Plymouth’s newspaper, and looks to the future of news in our time and in our community.
