Plymouth is an unincorporated community in Benton County, Washington, United States. Plymouth is located on the Columbia River across from Umatilla, Oregon. It is south of the Tri-Cities and is served by Interstate 82. It was named by early settlers who felt a nearby rock promontory resembled Plymouth Rock.[2]
