Caption: Plymouth Rock monument
Additional Description: This "Plymouth Rock" removed from the Mayflower steps in the harbor of Plymouth England from whence our pilgrim forefathers embarked in 1620, was presented to the people of this city on July 7, 1967, by the people of Plymouth, England, on the occasion of the visit of their Lord Mayor Frank Chapman during our Centennial Year of 1967.
This monument was built to honor and preserve this "Plymouth Rock," given as a symbol of the friendships that exist between the people of Plymouth, England and the people of Plymouth, Michigan. We observe the tradition of democracy and ??? heritage that is ours and seek to preserve it for posterity. May we keep this friendship ever fresh and meaningful by annual reaffirmation of respect for each other on the holiday of our separation, July 4th.
