In 1691, the Plymouth Colony merged with the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The area was named after Plymouth England by John Smith (1580-1631, English explorer, colonial governor, Admiral of New England) in 1614.

Pilgrims (English families) arrived here in 1620 on the Mayflower ship which spent 10 weeks at sea, carrying 102 passengers (Puritans/English Protestants) plus 30 crew. The ship Mayflower arrived in November 1620 (disembarked the ship on December 21). Due to the harsh winter, only half of the unprepared colonists survived. For the help received from the Indians (Wampanoag Tribe taught them food gathering/survival skills), in 1621 the colonists celebrated their first harvest together with the Indians - which event was later declared as the first Thanksgiving feast.

In the 19th century, the town's economy was based on rope making (Plymouth Cordage Co was the world's largest rope-making company), fishing, shipping. The current economy is based mainly on tourism and industries like healthcare, real estate, technical-scientific research, education, telecoms.
