"Discover Plymouth's History - A Walking Tour"

Walk the historic district and hear stories of the sacrifices the Pilgrims made to give our country the freedom we so richly enjoy today. Hear about the challenges they faced and learn the truth about the part their faith in God played in their journey to America and in their daily life. Is Plymouth Rock REALLY the true landing place of the Pilgrims? Find out why we believe it is!

"Forefathers Monument Tour"
This hidden gem is the largest free-standing solid granite monument in our country. Faith is the main statue, surrounded by Morality, Law, Education, and Liberty. This monument tells the faith story of the Pilgrims and how their faith shaped the founding and development of our country.
