THE PILGRIM MOTHER

The granite figure of a Pilgrim woman on the “Memorial to the Women on the Mayflower“, which has come to be known as “The Pilgrim Mother”, stands on the waterfront in a landscaped enclosure near Plymouth Rock. The sculptor was Paul 0. Jennewein.

On the shaft of the fountain that flows behind the Statue are listed the names of the women of the Mayflower in whose memory the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution gave the statue. The inscription reads; They brought up their families in sturdy virtue and a living faith in God without which nations perish.
