This chapter examines the housing of Pilgrim settlers in Plymouth Colony. There were three major types of Pilgrim houses, which may be distinguished with respect to floor plans and means of construction. These include the housing similar to what the English called a cottage, the story-and-a-half buildings, and an enlarged version of the second. The history of domestic architecture in Plymouth is a history of steadily growing diversity, so that by the end of the century the distance between the most humble and the most capacious houses of the colony was quite substantial.
