Summary

By the end of the nineteenth century Plymouth Massachusetts had become a typical New England Town with an active industrial base and a vibrant waterfront.  With the decline of the textile industry Plymouth re branded itself by highlighting its unique history. This was achieved not only by highlighting the Pilgrim story but also by the removal of many aspects of its 19th century landscape. This paper addresses the changes made in the mid-twentieth century through neighborhood redevelopment.
