About the Book
The highlight of this book is about how Plymouth’s youngest and most important abolitionist Abby Morton Diaz. Her stories and other research have allowed me to bring to you other abolitionists who lived in Plymouth or came to Plymouth to talk about abolishing black slavery.

Inside you will read about the people who touched Abby's life and how she touched the lives of others.

As you walk through the streets of Plymouth, you will see where abolitionists lived , attended meetings and church. The homes on the tour are privately owned, please respect their privacy. At the end of the tour is Bourne Spooner’s home and his Cordage Company. The Cordage building located behind Bourne’s home may be open for you to walk inside to see where the immigrants made rope. If you walk around the exterior, you can still get a sense of how enormous this company was during its heyday.

This tour is an eight mile walk but offers locations to park and view for the less adventurous walkers. Enjoy the history of this town whether you walk or drive to the locations.
