Plympton Town Green

280 Main St, Plympton, MA 02367, USA

Owned By: Town of Plympton

A long, narrow stretch of green space with a row of stately trees, plus benches, a gazebo/bandstand, a flag pole, historic markers and war memorials. Includes a tribute to Revolutionary War soldier Deborah Sampson.


This park features a memorial to Deborah Sampson, who was born in Plympton in 1760. After disguising herself as a man, Sampson became the only woman to earn a full military pension for participation in the Revolutionary Army. Sampson was honorably discharged in 1783 and then resumed a more typical life, at home on the farm with her husband and three children.

This land is within the region of the Wampanoag tribe. To learn more about our local tribes, we encourage you to interact with their members. The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, and the Herring Pond Wampanoag both share information on their websites.
