A Day in My Life: Harlow House


Harlow House in Plymouth, Massachusetts is one of the oldest houses in America. Sergeant William Harlow built the house in 1677 using timbers from the Separatists’ original fort on Burial Hill built in 1621-1622. The Harlow family owned the house for nearly 250 years.


The reason this is of interest to me is because my paternal grandmother was a Harlow! Marion Harlow Gibson Woods. She’s the one who started the Eagle Hill tearoom. Known to the family as Mommy Woods.
