Town of Duxbury

Incorporated 1637

Duxbury is a coastal community 33 miles south of Boston in Plymouth County. The Town was a center of shipbuilding until the mid-nineteenth century when ships became too large for the shallow bay. Many historic and beautiful homes from Pilgrim times and the shipbuilding period still exist. Formerly a rural and summer community with an economic base of fishing and agriculture, Duxbury has become a residential suburb of Boston since Route 3 made daily commuting possible.
