The Cape Cod Pilgrim Memorial Association is a private non-profit, educational 501(3)(c) organization.
Our mission is to:
-Maintain the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum buildings and land (the “PMPM”) to accommodate its libraries and collections.
-Commemorate the history of the Mayflower Pilgrims, culminating in their arrival and stay in Provincetown Harbor and the signing of the Mayflower Compact.
-Collect, preserve, research, exhibit and publish archival materials on all aspects of Provincetown history, including the contributions of the Wampanoag and other indigenous peoples whose presence in the region predates the arrival of the Mayflower, the rise of the whaling industry, the advent of the Portuguese fishing community and the evolution of Provincetown as a center of tolerance, art and theater in the 20th Century, including the important role of the LGBT community in that evolution.
