Massasoit, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA



From the crest of Cole's Hill on the Plymouth waterfront, this grand statue of Native American leader Massasoit stands majestically overlooking the harbor.



This powerful piece of art was created by Cyrus Dallin.  A Utah sculptor born in 1861, he studied in Boston and lived in the Boston area. He also created the statue of "Paul Revere" in Boston's North End neighborhood.



Massasoit was the Native American leader whose kindness was directly attributed to the survival of the Pilgrim settlers in 1620 in the New World.



Directly below the statue of Massasoit is the portico that houses the famous Plymouth Rock, seen here on a winter's day at low tide. Plymouth, "America's Hometown," always a delight.
