Welcome To The

The Howlett Homestead

Home Up


This was what Grandpa called, when he was young, "The Farm".  Located up on Central Avenue on the Linden Highlands of Malden Massachusetts.  I felt, that because there are no more Howlett's living on the hill, there is no reason for anyone to visit anymore. Therefore many family members might enjoy a photo visit down memory lane.  For those who don't know, it is all gone,  replaced by fifteen or so, new homes.  Just click on the thumbnails and enjoy those childhood memories; of chatting on the front porch with a glass of grandma's lemonade, or seeing Grandma picking her flowers, or us kids picking blueberries out the woods, and last, we'll never forget the wonderful huge family picnics in the old tennis court.

1Airplane rock  - Revere had an airport, pre 1960, to which the planes when they took off used that piece of ledge for navigating as an outer marker, hence it became the airplane rock.
