History In The Making


Parting Ways: Historical Information The story of the New Guinea Settlement at Parting Ways is not well known in Plymouth, Massachusetts or anywhere else in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or in the U.S.A. Nor is it easily found in books on American history. Unfortunately, the story of the New Guinea Settlement at Parting Ways is easily overshadowed by the other historic attractions in Plymouth: Plymouth Rock, Pilgrim Hall, Mayflower II, and Plymouth Plantation. The story is about four African-American men from Plymouth; Cato Howe, Quamony Quash, Plato Turner and Prince Goodwin, who enlisted and fought in the American Revolutionary War. For their service they were awarded their freedom and, by the Town of Plymouth, rewarded with land. They and their descendants established one of the first free black settlements. Today the site is also the final resting place of Cato Howe, Quamony Quash, Prince Goodwin and Plato Turner. Parting Ways Cemetery is their permanent home and one day in the future will be the home of the Parting Ways Museum of AfroAmerican History. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Parting Ways Museum will serve as a repository for documents, artifacts and all relevant materials related to Parting Ways. The Museum will serve as a significant research and learning facility, which will combine and enhance the cultural life of Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Aquaponic Farming & Distribution System Business Strategy Aquaponics is one of the most productive and sustainable food production systems in the world. It is a combination of Aquaculture (farming fish) and Hydroponics (growing plants with out soil) in which both fish and plants benefit from one another! The production levels of Aquaculture and Hydroponics combined far exceed that of either system alone. A More Sustainable, Even Self Sufficient Way of Farming. Parting Ways is planning on setting up a farm system on the historical site in Plymouth, MA.
