John Alden House in Duxbury
 

The Alden House is one of the few built in the 17th century that has remained untouched by “improvements”, such as plumbing, electricity and modern conveniences. The interior is decorated in period furniture. Clicking on the link above or the picture at right will take you to a virtual tour of the house and much historical and genealogical information.


King Caesar House

This house was built in 1808 for Ezra Weston II. He became known as King Caesar because of his worldwide preeminence in shipbuilding and shipping. At the time, he was the largest ship owner in America. The house is an exquisite example of Federal architecture. Two front parlors feature French wallpaper. An adjoining museum contains exhibits about maritime history.


Myles Standish Monument

High atop Captain’s Hill stands the Myles Standish Monument, a 116-foot granite shaft crowned by a 14-foot statue of Myles Standish, military leader of Plymouth Colony. The view from the summit offers a panorama of lighthouses, Provincetown, Plymouth Harbor, Cape Cod Bay and the Blue Hills. It’s truly a delightful spot for a picnic.


Weyerhaeuser Art Complex

The Weyerhaeuser Art Complex Museum nearby in Duxbury offers exhibits by internationally known artists. It has an exceptional permanent collection, and temporary exhibits, including Shaker furniture, and objects. A Japanese tea ceremony is presented
in a Kyoto tea hut, along with afternoon concerts.


Mayflower II

This is a reproduction of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to the New World in 1620. An exhibition on the dock relates the story of the arduous 66-day trans-Atlantic crossing. On board the vessel, marine artisans and costumed interpreters talk about the voyage and shipboard life during the 17th century
