Pilgrim State Park

Pilgrim State Park

Photo by Stacy Ginsberg

     Plymouth Rock has been chipped away by souvenir hunters, Plymouth Rock carved upon, Mayflower 2 moved several times and broken into two large sections over the last three centuries. Doubts about its authenticity abound, although Elder Faunce, Plymouth's record keeper, was certain that the rock was the first solid ground that the Pilgrims set foot upon in 1620 when the Mayflower arrived.
     Today, the rock has been moved back to the bottom of Cole's Hill and is surrounded by a fitting Ionic portico along a picturesque, seaside promenade. This landmark and replica Mayflower are part of Pilgrim State Park, found south of Boston, Massachusetts.
