  • Watch the documentary called "Monumental" before you go. It is a tribute to the desire for religious freedom, and the hopes for a new way of life.
  • Powerful place to go back to and remember the purpose abd destiny for New England and America. The grounds are kept beautifully! Wish They had some benches were the elderly or handicapped could sit.
  • Hidden but very worth seeing. Very beautiful historical landmark
  • Beautiful sculptures and an all around amazing place never knew it was there.
  • Inspiring! Sitting below the monument with my wife praying for our nation and the world! Sadly most who came there just either drove or walked by not reading the inscriptions! One must read and take to heart the words and understand each statue! They really need to advertise it more and add some plaques on how to interpret the whole monument! Thanks to Kirk Cameron the world knows more about this great awesome place!
