Jennifer MacDonald is the founder of 'Full Circle Homes', entrepreneur and home designer
‘Houses with History’ is a home renovation series on HGTV that takes us to Plymouth, in Massachusetts. This house tranformational series is looking at houses and barns built by early Americans in the New World. For this, the producers research fascinating backstories of America’s oldest homes.
In the show, we see passionate preservationists Mike Lemieux, Rich Soares, and designer Jen MacDonald meticulously restoring vintage historic homes in and around Plymouth. This renovation series comes with a serious amount of information. In each episode, the history buff, carpenter, and designer work together to save century-old properties.
The show stars a trio of Massachusetts' natives who have dedicated their lives to historic real estate. The premiere episode focuses on just two historic properties: a former inn and a single-family home built in the 1700s. What's more, they share the homes’ origins, renovation stories and all that history with us too!
