Plymouth Historical Society
Our Mission | Projects | Isaac Thorp | Links | Home
The Plymouth Historical Society's mission is to educate, preserve, advance and disseminate knowledge of the history of Plymouth.
Our current home, built in 1876, was owned by William Sebald, and built of cream city brick. In its early beginnings Sebald sold root beer and ale’s on the first floor while raising his family and living on the second floor. In the lower level was a cistern which was utilized to keep the beverages cool as well as a kitchen and dining room. In 2006, the society purchased the Sebald building and undertook extensive renovations. Today the first floor, which is handicapped accessible, is home to many changing displays of local interest.

What We Do
As Plymouth offers a rich historical legacy, the historical society is a vehicle for sharing this information to the public. This is accomplished through tours, exhibits, research, publications, educational offerings, as well as an on-site research library offering information related to Plymouth and Sheboygan county.
Our Board and Volunteers
The Plymouth Historical Society supplements and compliments other historical organizations in the county. It is operated by a volunteer board of director. There are no paid staff. The board develops and monitors a budget, establishes yearly goals while operating the museum in a professional manner. Other volunteers assist with visitors, exhibits, fund raising events and the like.
