“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

This huge statue, purportedly the largest solid granite monument in the United States, is very impressive and beautiful to view. No not miss it when visiting Plymouth.

“Great Bit of American History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

We stumbled on this purely by accident. We weren't disappointed thou. It's a really nice tribute of American history and great for history buffs. Beautiful piece of land surrounding it too.

“Amazing monument”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

This is kind of out of the way of the rest of the things to do in Plymouth but don't miss this monument, when you get there is it just breathe taking. So much detail was put into it.

“A beautiful reminder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Sadly, this historic statue is barely remembered or sought out by travelers to Plymouth. However, once you visit you will not be disappointed. A rare piece of national pride and a reminder of our religious past as a nation. Remarkable carvings, tall and impressive there is ample parking and is truly a place to reflect on our American heritage. If you like me, want to seek out places to remind us of our country's well documented Christian heritage, than visit this beautiful granite statue.
