Interview with Dr. K. David Weidner of the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum
In 1620, when the Pilgrims made the transatlantic voyage and landed in the New World aboard the Mayflower, they dropped anchor in Provincetown Harbor first, for five weeks, where they drafted and signed the Mayflower Compact which created what is considered to be the first democratic government to be established in the colonies.
Almost 400 years later, the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum stands as a beacon of democracy and a symbol of freedom. The Monument and Museum is a wonderful place to learn more about the Mayflower Pilgrims and about the history of Provincetown, where diverse groups have called it their home including the fishing industry, artists, writers, actors, and where tourists flock to during the summer months.
