About Daniel Howland

Daniel Howland was the innkeeper and proprietor of Howland's Ferry. He acquired the ferry and inn from John Simmons in 1694. Daniel was prominent in town affairs and for the first twenty years he lived near his ferry service. The town meetings were regularly scheduled at his residence which also doubled as a tavern, therefore the immediate surrounding vicinity of the ferry became known as Howland's Ferry Village. It later would become known as Stone Bridge Village.

His wife Mary kept her husband's tavern while she was a widow.
