Duxbury, Massachusetts, USA (Cedar Crest) (South Duxbury)

People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Duxbury, Massachusetts, USA? 

Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA
At first, those who settled in Duxbury came to work their new farms just in the warmer months and returned to Plymouth during the winter. It was not long, however, before they began to build homes on their land, and soon requested permission from the colony to be set off as a separate community with their own church. Duxbury, which originally included land that is now Pembroke, was incorporated in 1637.
