Lea Sinclair Filson, Governor General

Welcome to the Mayflower Society House Auction On behalf of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD), I thank those of you who have taken an interest in collecting items from our beautiful historic house. The Mayflower Society House was built in 1754 by a descendant of Mayflower passenger Edward Winslow, and purchased in 1941 by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. In 1950, Governor General Walter Merriam Pratt asked members and anyone interested in preserving the house to contribute 18th century items of furniture, wearing apparel, books, or other items of the period. Through donations of members, estates, friends of the Society, and through purchases, the entire house was furnished in a style indicative of an 18th century house. In 1951, an endowment was established for the upkeep of the house and through the years, members have continued to graciously give through donations and bequests, bringing the endowment to a level where the maintenance of the house can continue. The sale of some of the interior furnishings, on display through the years, will aid the Society in developing and implementing plans for preserving the historic house. Future plans will make the Mayflower Society House more accessible and functional for both Society members and the Plymouth community. The General Society of Mayflower Descendants undertakes the maintenance and repair of the house with pride and invites all who become owners of some of its historic contents to visit and tour the house. The words of former Governor General Walter Merriam Pratt in 1950 still resonate today. “...It is a house of great beauty and dignity, with history and atmosphere, perfectly located on North Street, one of five streets laid out by the Pilgrims, overlooking Plymouth Rock and Cole’s Hill...” It will continue to be open for tours between May and October. A virtual tour of the house can be seen at GSMD’s website: www.TheMayflowerSociety. org. We hope you will treasure your purchase from our magnificent collection and appreciate the dignified beauty and historic significance each item carries.
