Book A Speaking Engagement
Leo Martin, historian, author, and storyteller, is the Director of Education at The Jenney. He has been giving educational tours in Plymouth since 2001. He is best known for his knowledge about the Pilgrims and other facts about the founding of our country. His love of God and country and his passion for history are what give him the ability to engage listeners and bring history to life.
Leo has been called “the last God-fearing guide in historic Plymouth, MA.” While so many others are taking God out of the history books, Leo maintains that the Pilgrims and Founding Fathers established “one nation under God,” founded on Judeo-Christian values. He is a champion of our nation’s founding principles displayed in the National Monument to the Forefathers in Plymouth. His book, “Pilgrim Pursuit of Happiness” talks about the five liberties the Pilgrims were searching for when they left the Church of England and came to the New World and is the subject of one of the exhibits at The Jenney.
Leo and his wife, Nancy, co-founders of The Jenney, travel across the country teaching stories about the Pilgrims on topics of family, faith, economics, education, and more. They have been working together in Plymouth since 2001 preserving the Christian heritage of our country. Married for over forty years; they have three grown children and four grandchildren.
