Pilgrim Monument - a Provincetown LandmarkA Cape Cod icon, Pilgrim Monument Provincetown rises above the town, a testament to the Pilgrims of the Mayflower ship, which landed in the New World in November 1620. It also commemorates the signing of the Mayflower Compact, the Plymouth Colony's first governing document. Visitors can climb to the top, but be warned, you're in for a workout! There are 116 steps, and the breathtaking views are worth it. The Provincetown Museum features permanent exhibits on local and natural history. Popular displays include Wampanoag arrowheads and tools, and a 1830s fire engine, P-town's first!
