Plymouth in Plymouth County, Massachusetts — The American Northeast (New England)
The Massachusetts Society of the Sons of the American Revolution came to Plymouth on October 12, 1920 to dedicate this replica of the old Powder House. The original structure had been erected in Plymouth in 1779 and removed about 1880.
The Society contributed the money to build the red brick reproduction for Plymouth’s 300th Anniversary in 1921. The building is dedicated to the descendants of the pilgrims by birth of the spirit who aided in the establishment of America’s independence. The present brick building, like the original, stands in the old cemetery, originally called Fort Hill, where the Pilgrims built their first fort.
