This is an interesting statue. It would have been nice to have more information about it or at least a guide there to answer questions. It is probably a self explanatory site.

We had heard from a friend about this monument and decided since we were in the area to check it out- SO glad that we did. It wasn't hard to find, but there isn't a lot pointing to it either. It is in a residential area. The monument is huge, breathtakingly beautiful, and rich with symbolism. My friend had mentioned... More

This monument is huge and the Statue of Liberty is the only one with carved out eyes... It is on top of a hill within a residential neighborhood

This monument is a true tribute to our Christian heritage (even though many today try to deny it). Be sure to check out a visitors guide to Plymouth for an in depth explanation of each element of the monument.

As you drive through a residential neighborhood it is easy to question why you are going where you are. I must say that as I turned into the park it took my breath away. The grandeur of the memorial itself is awe inspiring. My wife had found an online explanation of each part of the memorial so we read it... More

Ok, we got into Plymouth kinda late and didn't have a ton of time here. We of course saw the Plymouth Rock & looked at the Mayflower II. Did a little shopping on the waterfront & then got in the car to drive around town. I looked in the AAA travel guide & it mentioned this so we went to... More

Your children will be enlightened by this monument, especially if you encourage them to seek out the symbols on all sides of it (justice, education, mercy, etc.). It's a huge monument; you can see it as part of a guided bus tour, but we drove right up to it very easily before driving down to the waterfront. I recommend seeing... More

We did this tour with Leo from Jenny House and were greatly blessed with his knowledge and passion. The intricacies of this monument was amazing and impactful. Wonderful to hear so much history that is not being taught to our children in schools.
