Bill Fornaciari’s column (History & Architecture, Jan. 12) was great story with wonderful memories. We moved to Plymouth – Atlantic Avenue – in 1971 where we had built a lovely colonial house across from the ocean. We had good neighbors, many of whom are still close friends. We shopped at Benny’s plaza for groceries and always made another stop at Benny’s.
We sold the house in the early ’90s and moved to “The Cottage” in Manomet – again across from the ocean. The cottage was enlarged by adding a lower floor. We have been so happy here. And we have watched the changes in Plymouth – the loss of Buttner’s, Puritan, and Smith’s gift shop… the malls. the condos. We’re happy the Grist Mill is still with us and the Mayflower II docks every year.
For years, we took our children and grandchildren to the Thanksgiving parade and Pilgrims Progress on Thanksgiving. We loved the lighting of the town Christmas tree.
Plymouth has been our home for 52 years, and is the home for most of our children , grandchildren, and now great grandchildren. I am thankful each day that we are here.
