Located 29 miles southeast of Boston on Cape Cod Bay, Duxbury is considered part of the Boston metropolitan area and uniquely combines a rich history with world-class waterfronts.

Duxbury History

Duxbury was originally inhabited by the Wampanoags who called the area Mattakeesett, meaning a “place of many fish.” Incorporated in 1637, Duxbury was home to some of the most influential men who settled the original colony of Plymouth, including Captain Myles Standish and Elder William Brewster. John Alden was another important figure, whose home is now a museum on Alden Street. Myles Standish named the town in honor of his family estate in Lancashire, England, called Duxbury Manor. In the 1840s, Duxbury flourished as a shipbuilding community but ultimately transitioned to a summer resort once the Duxbury & Cohasset Railroad was completed in 1871, allowing tourists from Boston to day-trip to Duxbury’s beaches for a small sum.  The Duxbury community includes a sprinkling of notable residents such as Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and former Citigroup chairman John S. Reed. Truman Capote was reputed to have summered in Duxbury while he wrote Breakfast at Tiffany.
