Mattapoisett Library Hosts Author Darcy H. Lee

Darcy H. Lee, author of Ghosts of Plymouth, Massachusetts, will talk about her book via Zoom on Thursday, October 29 at 6:00 pm. Plymouth is known worldwide as “America’s Hometown,” the landing place of the Pilgrims in 1620 and home of the first Thanksgiving. But the real story of the town is a tale of grim beginnings, plague, desperation, massacre, murder, and fear. A ghostly Victorian couple is known to wander Burial Hill. A shocking crime on Leyden Street, one of the oldest streets in America, still haunts the area. The crew of the brigantine General Arnold, trapped offshore during an icy eighteenth-century blizzard, are suspected to haunt not one but three locations. Author Darcy H. Lee exposes the haunting acts that lie beneath Plymouth’s cherished history.
