The colonists' original settlement was in the area where Leyden Street is today. All that remains of the first colony is a plaque at the base of this property which reads, "On this lot stood the first house of the Mayflower Pilgrim John Howland." The inscription was added to the sidewalk by the Pilgrim John Howland Society in 1978.
