NOTE: The Howland House has closed for the season. We will reopen next summer. Check back for times and dates for 2021.
The Jabez Howland House is the only existing house in Plymouth where Pilgrims actually spent time. The original 17th century two-story timber framed house consisted of the porch, hall and hall chamber. Jabez Howland, John and Elizabeth’s son, lived here with his family until they sold the house in 1680. It was a private residence until 1912 when it was purchased for a museum. The Howland House is a National Register of Historic Places site.
It was a private residence until 1912 when it was purchased for a museum. In the 1940’s extensive work was done to bring it back to its original appearance. Today the museum houses fine period furniture as well as artifacts from archeological digs at the Rocky Nook homes of John and Elizabeth and their son Joseph’s farm. See 17th century fine period furniture as well as artifacts, letters and documents, letters from famous descendants Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, plus many other exciting things.
