Historic Leyden Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Leyden Street

Leyden Street, situated in Plymouth, Massachusetts, traces its origins back to 1620 when it was established by the Pilgrims. Boasting the distinction of being the oldest consistently inhabited street in the Thirteen Colonies of British America, it was initially designated as First Street. Subsequently, historical records referred to it as Great and Broad Street. In 1823, the street acquired the name Leyden Street, though it is alternately recognized as Leiden Street or simply referred to as The Street.
