Pilgrim Monument: more easy to reach thanks to the cable railway

The Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, in Massachusetts, overlook all Provincetown from the High Pole Hill.

It’s not easy for visitors climbing the hill and reaching the Pilgrim Monument, built in 1910 to commemorate the landing of the Pilgrims and 252 feet tall.

So, the Provincetown Museum board has proposed constructing the cable railway to carry people from the centre of Bas Relief Park to the granite monument grounds.

This new project of cable railway is just in the first design phase and could be like a glass elevator, a trolley or a train car.

The estimated cost of the funicular is around $2 million, to be paid by the monument and donations.

The project would get ready for 2020, a special year for the Pilgrim Monument and the town, because it celebrates the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims to Cape Cod.

Galbiati Group is an Italian company internationally-recognized for the quality of its mechanical engineering and constructions: discover the Galbiati Group winch drives for cable-car industry (for cable railways, cable ways, cable cars, and chairlifts)!
