Garden Walkway Project
The Mayflower Society’s Colonial Revival garden is the popular site of summer strolls and intimate weddings for all who appreciate the unique beauty hidden behind The Mayflower Society house in downtown Plymouth. Originally established by the affluent Willoughby family in the early 1800s and used for lavish tea parties, the garden is now the relaxing centerpiece of The Mayflower Society’s headquarters.
The Mayflower Society established the Garden Walkway Fundraising Project in 2011 and has since installed over 600 engraved, donated bricks.
We encourage members and friends to place a brick in the walkway to celebrate, honor or remember their families. The Garden Walkway Project is a wonderful way to leave a lasting memory of your family in Plymouth where the Mayflower Pilgrim ancestors established Plymouth Colony, resulting in bringing self-governance to this country. Your commemorative brick will grace our walkway in the heart of America’s Hometown for years to come.
Inscribed bricks are available for a donation of $150 per brick. The 4″ x 8″ laser-engraved red bricks can hold three lines of text, with a maximum of 20 characters in each line. Your order, which is considered a donation, is tax deductible.
The Society accepts orders year-round and bricks are generally placed in the Garden Walkway twice per year – once in the spring and once in the fall.
The center Octagon in the Garden Walkway has been completed with inscribed bricks. Thank you all for your support! A new location to honor Officers past and present will be announced soon.
Brick orders can only be made by mail at this time.
Already Donated a Brick?
Former Member-at-Large Richard Denham graciously compiled an index of all bricks purchased and placed in the Mayflower Society Garden Walkway Project as of August 2017. This list continues to be updated. Bricks are listed by last name and you can use this aerial view of the garden to locate where your brick has been placed.

Our staff would be more than happy to send you a photo once installed.
