Storyline

When Boston lawyer Mary Ross inherits a house in Plymouth from her late aunt, she has no idea she may have inherited a historical treasure. Mary's initial desire to sell the house is supported by her slick boyfriend, Rick, but she is shocked to discover local historian Everett Mather has evidence that her house is located on the site of the first Thanksgiving. With the house turning into an unexpected tourist attraction, putting Mary in the media spotlight at the prying of unscrupulous gossip blogger Ashleigh Mulligan, Everett tries to prove his theory and Mary tries to prove anything that will keep the house in her hands. Suddenly, Mary clings to the house as an artifact of her own history before her happy childhood memories were tarnished by her father's abandonment. Ultimately, Mary must decide if it is more important to preserve the house's historical ties or make it the site of many happy Thanksgivings to come. What will she choose? Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Trivia

Actress Cerina Vincent noted on the Hallmark Channel's Home & Family (2012) show, that she booked the movie while her broken foot was still in a cast. She had the cast removed and two days later had to film all scenes where she was walking. She had the wardrobe department furnish a larger size boot so her ankle and foot could be well wrapped.

The First Thanksgiving was not at Plymouth, Mass
2 November 2016 | by ebutlergeeSee all my reviews

This sweet film has everything going for it...good cast and writing and a cozy theme. But it is marred for this Virginia native by the film's assertion that the "first" Thanksgiving occurred in 1621 in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

In fact, the first Thanksgiving occurred in 1607 in Jamestown, Virginia when the first colonists to colonize what we now know as America arrived in three ships: The Discovery, The Godspeed and the Susan Constant. One of the first things the colonists did was to have a Christian service of Holy Communion and Thanksgiving. They also befriended the Native American tribes in the area and shared meals together. It is important that our media accurately reflect actual American history. Hallmark has an obligation to have said, "the first Thanksgiving in the Massachusetts colony" which would have been the truth and would not have detracted from the film's theme.
