  • The monument honoring parents pilgrims who came to Plymouth in the year 1620, on the ship Mayflower II from England and fleeing the persecution of Christians in Europe is worthy of the birth of the American nation. At the top of a hill, hangs over the entire region, providing a beautiful view.

  • Set up on a hillsode away from the busy town, this monument is massive and extremely well carved. Four sided with information about all the passengers who arrived on the Mayflower.  more »
  • If you have 10 minutes to fill, I highly recommend stopping for a photo op. Beautiful site and beautiful monument. Largest monument made from a single piece of granite in the states.  more »

  • Awe inspiring!!! The details and craftsmanship is unbelievable. All the names of the people that were on the Mayflower are listed on 2 side panels. Take a the time to walk completely around the monument and study the flow and details. It's very worthy of a few minutes out of your day. You'll be thankful for it!
  • This is an amazing monument - it took 70 years to build it, I wish more people knew about it. It is 81 feet tall and a beautiful reminder of the values this country was founded on: faith, morality, education, law, liberty and justice.
  • Very interesting, guide from Jenny museum knowledgeable and entertaining. Movie "Monumental" highly recommended as well to round out experience and provide historical background.
  • Shear size of this statue is impressive on its own. The history and story of the monument make it a must see. Grounds that surround the statue are well kept and clean but not very impressive overall.
  • This was an amazing monument. Glad we were able to go see it. Lots of history there, from why her name is Faith, why she's pointing up to heaven, why certain statues on it are holding the things they are. Definitely, would recommend it.
