A Rededication of the Pilgrim Mother Fountain by the Daughters of the American Revolution will take place on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 10:00AM. The event is open to the public and Daughters from across the country will attend the ceremony.
During the Continental Congress of 1920, the Daughters of the American Revolution voted to present a monument in memory of the Pilgrims and in honor of the 300th Anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower. In the next two years, funds were raised and an architect and sculpture were secured. In 1925 the fountain was dedicated.
In 2019, the VanBuren Administration of the Daughters of the American Revolution secured the funds and with the assistance of the Department of Conservation and Recreation and Skylight Studios, conservation and restoration of the fountain were completed in honor of the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Mayflower and the women who were on board.
The rededication will be held at the fountain site on the corner of Water Street and North Street in Plymouth, MA.
