  • 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 »

  • Finally got to get up-close to the monument after having looked on from a distance many years ago. It is much larger than I thought and very detailed. The gate was closed so I had to park on the road and walk up the granite steps into the park.
  • Phenomenal job... It's the world's largest granite freestanding monument...the real statue of liberty... Our great descendants straight off the Mayflower...
  • This statue is a hidden gem in Plymouth, MA. Find it north of the harbor hidden in a neighborhood. The statue and it's meaning is truly awe inspiring. To can walk from the waterfront, yet there is loads of free parking around the monument and getting there is uphill from the water. Keep searching for it.. It's worth the hunt. Local people did not really know if it, so keep looking and use your navigation.
  • This was really cool. A monument to the pilgrims! It is iff the beaten path so wasn't busy at all but it is huge and amazing! A must see!
  • This monument is beautiful. I would wait for nice weather. But it's beautiful. I have a ton of pics but none on this phone. Definitely worth going to see.
