A great monument!

Wow! This monument is huge! It is located close to town and in a residential area. It's great to see and take pictures of.

If you are in Plymouth and saw the boat and rock and had your roll and if you have a car it is worth the ride to go see. Monument to the people on the boat

I stumbled upon this beautiful monument by chance. Although the there are signs leading to the place, you have to pay close attention or you will miss them, they are kind of small since the monument is in a residential area.

After seeing the movie "Monumental," we were thankful to incorporate a visit here during a New England trip. It's a lovely monument, and interesting to read the inscriptions, although the addition of a Pokestop did help entertain our kids for a bit. Ha!

Missed this in past visits to Plymouth. You can drive and park right at the monument. Was cool to walk around and really big. Amazing that it was made so long ago.

The name was changed from a "Pilgrim" monument some time ago. It is huge. Biblical concepts are the main point here. The main statue represents Faith with her right hand pointing to Heaven. In her left hand Faith is clutching a Bible. Around Faith are statues representing Morality, Law, Education, and Liberty. We were alone when we went as it... More

This is a really impressive monument. It is a few minutes from the Plymouth rock & worth a stop. We read a description online to get a better idea of the significance of some of the images on the monument. It is too bad there is no "official" sign/description at the site. There is a gravel circular driveway & is... More

Worth finding and getting out of the car to read and observe up close. The circular drive around the monument allows you to stop on the back side and when you walk to the monument you can get a good view of the bay. Very informative descriptions on the monument and a very quiet atmosphere for contimplation.

This is a great place that no one really comes to see. It is worth the 2 minutes off the beat and path. Its size is just amazing and its free. Make the time it is worth it.

This was our (me and my 11 yr old son) last stop in Plymouth and in so glad we did. We got there about sunset it was just gorgeous!!! The monument was amazing, and huge! I couldn't believe we were the only ones there. It really is a must see! But do this last or you will be disappointed with... More
