This is the home of my very distant relative John Howland. The tour is interesting. Just know in the winter you can’t go upstairs.

The tour we received was great. So much information and fun stories. Amazing that this house is still standing and is in such good shape. The women who work there were all descendants (as am I) and they gave us information about the Howland Society.

My mother's lineage goes back to the Mayflower Howland's. Very cool to be in a house that my 11th great grandparents used to be in. Staff were also descendants and very sweet! Enjoyed my visit very much!

We can’t remember exactly how much it was but it was a nominal amount. It certainly won’t break the bank. Hope this helps.
