One of my favorite sites in Plymouth. The Howland family epitomize the American dream and being where John and Elizabeth Howland were is so meaningful.
Very nice tour. Guide was very informative and patient. Did best to answer all questions. Highly recommend if you are curious about the Howland lineage.
