Plymouth History[edit]

Consider that Plymouth's history (beyond sports) should be added to this Wikipedia entry. Especially the dealings with the Potawatomi Indians and the Trail of Death, which took place in Plymouth.

I agree with the person above. Plymouth is not all about sports, although it seems that way sometimes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.228.105.199 (talk) 01:35, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

I dont think that the inclusion of a very nearly mental case homeless man needs to be inserted into this. If your going to put it in, make it unbiased, and without the personal nit picks. -Rexmage

Just removed an ad nauseum description of Dave McKenzie from the timeline -- while it is a part of Plymouth High School History, it is indeed not important to the history of Plymouth, or does not merit line after line of biography for Mr. McKenzie. Please refrain from editing to add more content. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.174.128.81 (talk) 18:12, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Why does Dave McKenzie keep appearing in this article he is just one teacher at Plymouth High School. This is not important. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.211.221.133 (talk) 22:00, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Removed excessive description of one of Plymouth's "notable" individuals -- Nicole Rash had a 3 line-long description compared to the single line length of the other 2 individuals. This section is highly subjective anyways, but it's not a pulpit for people to sing their own (or others') praises. Mobaar (talk) 22:00, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Why is there no recent information about the success of the student body at PHS? We have had many great things for the community that should be acknowledged. Bpruffing24 (talk) 15:36, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

Sundown Town[edit]

Dr. James Loewen lists Plymouth, Indiana as a possible Sundown Town. It is my testimony that it certainly was one.

I was born in Plymouth in 1951 and graduated from high school in 1969. Every day on the bus ride to school I saw a small, white and black sign. It was on US 31 at the northern city limits that read: "All non-residents are required to leave the city by 9pm," or some such wording. At the bottom it referred to a city ordinance. The sign is no longer there. There was no such sign at the southern border of town on US 31, nor on the east and west entrances on US 30. North of Plymouth, on US 31, is the city of South Bend, which has a large Black-American population. The only black person I saw in town as a child was the high school janitor. He commuted from South Bend.

If that ordinance could be verified, this fact should be updated in Plymouth's WP page.
