Plymouth Rock is the traditional site where the Mayflower Pilgrims stepped ashore in the New World in 1620. It is an important symbol in American history. Edward Winslow did not mention the rock in Mourt's Relation (1620–1621). William Bradford did not mention it in his journal Of Plymouth Plantation (1620–1647). The first written reference to the Pilgrims landing on a rock is found 121 years after they landed. The rock has been memorialized in Plymouth, Massachusetts for a long time.

The Secrets of Plymouth Rock is a children's book about Plymouth Rock as told by the Rock itself!
