This is 216 times life size and can be seen from far away, towering over the trees. The design is similar to the Statue of Liberty.

Be sure not to miss this amazing granite statue when you visit Historic Plymouth, Ma. A tribute to the first two boats that landed in Plymouth, The Mayflower and the Ann. It is inscribed with all the passenger's names and a beautiful structure. It is off the waterfront area on Allerton St.

Beautifully done and part of a lovely town to walk around. We really enjoyed the monument and the walk around the historic town centre.

This is a beautiful monument! and to think that it was built "by hand" all those many years ago! There is a lot of detail to this statue! And all of the Pilgrim Family names are listed along; it's awesome and worth a visit!

This is a must do for anyone in the area. If you're near Plymouth, it's worth it. We called the Jenny museum and set up our tour. It was cheap for the knowledge you get. Our guide was so interesting to listen to. Wealth of knowledge. The monument itself is breathtaking. If you want a true history of our country... More

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.
