There is online the Plymouth Archive covering 1620 to 1691 with some items beyond those dates. You’ll find court records, colony laws, 17th-century journals and memoirs, probate inventories, wills, town plans, maps and fort plans, all relating to the Plymouth Colony of Massachusetts.
The site is laid out like a research room: Click the area you want to enter, such as Grave Art in New England, Probate, Biographies, Images of Plymouth History or Times of Their Lives. Overall about a dozen topics to select from.
The images of Plymouth History are drawings and a few later photos of places taken over the decades. Scroll down that page to see the listing of illustration and click on each.
For some real in-depth research into the Plymouth Colony during the 17th century and some into the 18th century, this Plymouth Archive is a must activity.
Photos: March of Miles Standish with the Indians; Gov. Edward Winslow portrait; and a map of Plymouth outlining places in 1701.
