Let History Ring: Casting A New Ship’s Bell

When: August 31 – September 1, 2019

Where: Plimoth Plantation Lower Parking Lot

Event is free to the public; special programming will be available with Museum admission!

Join world-renowned bell makers The Verdin Company as they bring their mobile bell foundry to Plimoth Plantation for a weekend-long bell casting and festival that kicks off our series of homecoming events for MAYFLOWER!

Watch it all unfold live with expert narration by Verdin’s team, from the passing of bronze ingots and veterans’ medals to pouring, casting, and breaking out the bell. Dignitaries and honored guests will ring the bell for the first time before it is transported – very carefully – to Mystic, Connecticut for installation on MAYFLOWER prior to her official launch on Saturday, September 7, 2019.

Look for more details to come on local food vendors, entertainment, and activities for children!
