Virtual program by Marek Bennett

"Comics in World History and Cultures"

Bennett will present a whirlwind survey of comics from around the world and throughout history in a virtual program sponsored by the Plymouth Historical Society and Pease Public Library. Bennett will pay special attention to what these vibrant narratives tell and show us about the periods that created them. He will engage the audience in an interactive discussion of several sample comics representing cultures as different as Ancient Rome, Feudal and Modern Japan, and the United States in the early 20th century. The program explores the various ways of creating and reading comics from around the world and what these techniques tell us about the cultures in which they occur.

CURRENT EXHIBIT   2022 Season

Made in Plymouth, NH - Yesterday to Today

Many people think of Plymouth as a sleepy college town, but at points in its past it was a hive of industry, manufacturing goods that were shipped across the country and around the world.

The Plymouth Historical Society's newest exhibit features over a dozen industries -- large and small -- from Plymouth's founding to today. While some goods were common items that were made in most towns, others were quite unique and surprising. Come and discover the history hidden in you own backyard! The exhibit displays include brief narratives, interesting photos and actual artifacts when possible.
