A gift from the Daughters of the American Revolution for the 1921 Tercentenary Celebration. For the Daughters of the American Revolution, 1920 meant honoring this time of female triumph and Plymouth’s 300th Anniversary Celebration with a nod to the Mayflower women, whose numbers were decimated that first winter in Pawtuxet. National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution commissioned Carl Paul Jennewein to sculpt The Pilgrim Mother Fountain on Water Street to commemorate these women.
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 statue will be rededicated on November 5, 2021 to honor the town’s 400th Commemoration. The event is open to the public and Daughters from across the country will attend the ceremony.
