GSMD Seeks to Restore First Parish Church in Plymouth, Massachusetts

Hampton Luzak

In her professional career, Hampton Barringer Luzak has served as a producer and on-air reporter with MSNBC and as a sales and marketing executive with the Carlisle Collection. Outside of the workplace, Hampton Luzak is a direct descendant of early American colonists and holds active membership in the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.

Comprised solely of individuals with proof of family lineage to a passenger of the Mayflower during its 1620 journey to America, the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) spearheads a range of educational and general community outreach initiatives. One of its current projects is the restoration of the historic First Parish Church in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Although the extant First Parish Church building dates back to 1899, the Plymouth pilgrims established the First Parish congregation shortly after their arrival in 1620. The GSMD has active plans to purchase the First Parish Church, complete extensive repairs to the building, and rename it the National Pilgrim Memorial Meetinghouse. On October 22, 2018, the town of Plymouth voted to give the GSMD a grant of approximately $2.6 million to aid in the restoration of the church’s dilapidated stone exterior.
