Redemption Rock is a colonial-era historic site in Princeton, Massachusetts. In 1676, during King Philip's War, the release of Mary Rowlandson (the wife of a Puritan minisiter) from her Native American captors was negotiated atop a granite ledge located on the property. The .25-acre (0.10 ha) reservation upon which the rock stands was acquired by the land conservation non-profit organization The Trustees of Reservations in 1953, and is open to the public.
Rowlandson would later write about her captitivy and release in A Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson, considered a seminal work in the American literary genre of captivity narratives.
Redemption Rock is located off Massachusetts Route 140, near Wachusett Mountain.
