High on a Hill

The monument is larger than expected. Many historic inscriptions and the statues are well done. Good view of the Plymouth Bay.

We enjoyed the view from up there and walking around the entire base of the memorial statue to read all the inscriptions. Looks like in the summer it would be a great place for a picnic - if you can do that there.

I had never heard of this monument before. It is a beautiful monument and should be given more attention. I recommend a visit if you are in the area.

It took a little while to find but, when we got there, my sister and I couldn't believe that this is so obscure. It's HUGE and, in my opinion, should be lauded, taught, made a bigger part of our national conscience. Very interesting. I'll be back in the fall and I intend to take a guided tour since it was...

A little out of the way and up the hill is the Forefathers monument. Not a huge park, but very interesting nonetheless . This monument is solid granite and reminds of the values this country was built on. Worth a look

A trip worth making.... Off the beaten path, but enormous! Quiet. Gives you a sense of the surrounding neighborhood. Doesn't take long...very pretty and interesting.

It was huge and somewhat interesting. I would advise it as a brief stop. It is close to the BEST WESTERN Plus Cold Spring hotel.

I was on a day tour with a bunch of teachers (convention in Boston) and this was our last stop. So glad we did. Our bus driver told us that this was done before the Statue of Liberty so one could say it was the model for her... The carvings are gorgeous and it was moving to be here. Our... More

This is a hidden jewel in Plymouth! If your visiting Plymouth you don't want to miss this one. Unfortunately, there are even locals who don't know of this special place.
