Historic Site
The Jabez Howland House is a historic house at 33 Sandwich Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts.The oldest portion of this two-story wood frame house was built by Jacob Mitchell (son of Pilgrim Experience Mitchell) in 1667, and purchased by Jabez Howland, son of Mayflower passengers John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley Howland, two of the original Pilgrims. John and Elizabeth Howland lived in Jabez Howland's home after their own house burned. John Howland died in 1674 and Elizabeth lived there until the house was sold in 1680 and Jabez Howland moved to Rhode Island. Elizabeth moved to the home of her daughter, Lydia Browne, in Swansea, where she died in 1687. The Jabez Howland House was owned as a private residence until 1915. Extensive restoration of the property took place in the 1940s to return it to its 17th century appearance. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.The Pilgrim John Howland Society owns and operates the house as a historic house museum that has been restored and decorated with 17th-century period furnishings. The house is open for tours from Memorial Day through Columbus Day.

  • Its a magical place with tons of original old objects. Completed by a tour wit one of the guides who seem deeply involved in the history of the pilgrims, its a perfect time travel.
  • I toured the house years ago and loved it. The people working there are knowledge about the house and its former occupants.
