Museum Volunteer Chronicles Plymouth History in New Book

Leis Dauzet-Miller to discuss book Feb. 14 at Plymouth Historical Museum.

Plymouth's rich history is profiled in a new book by a volunteer at the Plymouth Historial Museum.

Legendary Locals of Plymouth draws upon stories and recollections of some of Plymouth's most notable influencers, including 102-year-old philanthropist and classic car aficionado Margaret Dunning, according to a news release from the museum.

Leis Dauzet-Miller, the author of the book, is a museum volunteer, longtime resident and educator. 

The book also features stories of the Houghs and Bennetts, who helped put Plymouth on the map; Sanford Burr, whose family history runs deep in Plymouth and Joanne Winkleman Hulce, whose love of the arts has sparked a creative element in the community, according to the news release.

Dauzet-Miller will discuss—and sign copies of—her book at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 14 at a meeting of the Friends of the Plymouth Historical Museum. The museum has copies of the book available for sale in the Museum Store and copies will be available during the meeting, the news release indicated.

It was an enjoyable evening at the Plymouth Historical Museum. Meeting Leis and others who were featured in this book were also present. Margaret Dunning was pleasantly signing copies of this book while sharing stories of Plymouth.
