Jabez Howland House, Plymouth, Massachusetts

The Jabez Howland House is located at 33 Sandwich Street, in Plymouth, Massachusetts. It is open to the public for tours from Memorial Day until Thanksgiving week, and operated by the Pilgrim John Howland Society.   It is the only existing colonial house in Plymouth where a Pilgrim actually lived!  It dates from 1667, and was owned by Jabez, son of John Howland the Mayflower passenger.  John and Elizabeth (Tilley) Howland lived here with their son in the winters.  Their farm was out on Rocky Nook in what is now the town of Kingston, Massachusetts.
