Duxbury is an oceanfront South Shore town that combines the peaceful allure of country living with the nautical charms of the sea. It has become an affluent suburb that includes 37 miles of scenic coastline, a high-achieving school system and proximity to Route 3, which makes it an easier commute to Boston than many towns that are closer to the city.
Early Duxbury, which was incorporated in 1637, soon progressed from a farming community to a major shipbuilding power, but when that industry waned in the late nineteenth century, the town became an increasingly popular summer resort. Hotels and boarding houses sprang up along the coast, and as time passed, summer residents who traveled there from Boston on the Duxbury and Cohasset Railroad, purchased larger houses and made the vacation area into a year-round home.
Tourist sites within the town include miles of beautiful beaches, the North Hill Marsh, the town forest, a 152-acre Audubon Society sanctuary, the Myles Standish State Park, and a Colonial burying ground containing the graves of John and Priscilla Alden and Myles Standish. The town has two golf courses and country clubs, a yacht club, an art museum and a branch of the South Shore Conservatory of Music.
Duxbury is bordered by Cape Cod Bay, Kingston Bay, Duxbury Bay, Pembroke and Marshfield. It houses tree-lined neighborhoods of antique colonial homes and sea captain’s houses, and is one of the largest cranberry producers in the Commonwealth.
