Join the Monroe Historical Society in celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage as we welcome speaker Carol Wilder-Tamme. Ms. Wilder-Tamme is a costumed, interactive speaker and descendant of Mayflower passenger Constance Hopkins. She will share Constance’s reminiscences of her life changing voyage, and how the newly formed Plymoth Colony was shaped by the Pilgrims and their beliefs.
This event is co-sponsored by the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library.
