The Harlow Old Fort House is a historic First Period house at 119 Sandwich Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

History

Sergeant William Harlow built the house in 1677 using timbers from the Pilgrims' original fort on Burial Hill built in 1621-1622.[2] Harlow received permission to use the timbers after the fort was torn down at the end of King Philip's War in 1677. The Harlow family owned the house for nearly 250 years until the Plymouth Antiquarian Society acquired the building and hired Joseph Everett Chandler to restore the plasterwork in the house. The Antiquarian Society opened it to the public in 1921. In 1974 the house was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The house is still open to the public and features seventeenth-century re-enactors.
