Living near Plymouth we have seen a lot of the sights there. The Trip Advisor top rating for Jenney Gristmill made us curious to see what all the fuss was about. We took the “Business Not as Usual” tour during which Leo the Miller took us through a wonderfully vibrant history of how the Pilgrims developed from a communal society to one based on capitalism. Leo’s presentation covers everything from how the Pilgrim children were educated to the origin of ‘Johnny Cake’.
Because we were the only couple in the tour, we were able to speak at length with Leo and his wife Nancy about their efforts to repair the Jenney house and add gardens to the area which now has a small cranberry bog. We came away very impressed with their dedication and hard work. We will return to take their other tours and would add our voices to the others here who have rated this the number one attraction in Plymouth.
