January 20, 2020 – The National Monument to the Forefathers – Massachusetts

Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to The National Monument to the Forefathers (also referred to as the Plymouth Monument) in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  The National Monument to the Forefathers was dedicated in 1889 and honors the Mayflower Pilgrims.  This granite Monument is approximately 81 feet in height and is suspected to be the largest solid granite monument.  It is managed by the Department of Conservation.

We had a grand Adventure to the National Monument of the Forefathers.  I was quite impressed upon arrival, the Statue towering from atop a small hill, the sun streaming down.  The entrance gate was closed so we parked on the side of the road and sauntered in.  We began by walking the road around the statue before heading up close to view it.  I was impressed at the size, almost too large to visualize the details from below.  It was just spectacular, and definitely one of the larger sculptures I have seen.  It was a little difficult to photograph with the sun brightly shining, however I did my best, even enjoying some snapshots with the timer.  There was little else to the area besides the Monument but definitely worth the visit.  So glad we could see the National Monument of the Forefathers (Rating:  4).
