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.

I loved this huge, yet hidden gem. The statue speaks volumes of our country being founded on Feith with 4 pillars of morality, education, law and liberty.. Don’t miss it.

I found this monument as an extra stop in Plymouth. It was worth the time to see. It's beautiful! It's a part of US History that I'm glad we found, read all the information on the monument and have pictures to reflect back on.

This was an excellent site. We had our awesome tour guide - Leo the husband- from the Jenney museum. I recommend use him as you guide. The monument was incredible and the details so incredible. Great learning experience of our country’s beginning

I'm torn. It's easy to get to and in a beautiful setting. The size and beauty are impressive. But 10 minutes was enough for me. I really recommend seeing it, but don't expect much.

A pretty impressive monument (for it's size) that sits above town with a view out toward the water. There isn't much there to describe the monument so you may find it helpful to read up ahead of time online if you want to understand the...More

If you're going to build a monument to your forefathers you might as well go big or go home. This is big. Boring? Yep. If my descendants are going to build me a monument I hope they do it like this. Don't plan on needing...More

Just come to Plymouth, visit the visitors center. You can see the monument just by walking to it. Easy distance. Or, there are trolley tours that will take you to the highlights of Plymouth. Very inexpensive!
