Climb the monument for a great view and bring your camera.
- Few people know that the Pilgrims first struck land in Provincetown, on November 21, 1620, before continuing on to Plymouth. While anchored in Provincetown Harbor, the Pilgrims signed the Mayflower Compact, dedicating themselves to a community governed by rudimentary democratic rule. This tower was built in 1910 to commemorate that landing, and a climb to the top affords one of the best views on the entire Cape. Admission includes access to the tower and the adjacent Provincetown Museum.
