Ben and Mrs Too have once again been educated and astounded because of our system for finding little pockets of excellence in our young but proud heritage. Having worked out the basic route for a road trip, we look for little “burgs” along the way,...More

Whenever family or friends visit Duxbury, this special home is always on the list of things to see. Christmas Time tours are a must. You can't visit Duxbury without a tour of one of our most historical homes!

We had a private tour by the town historian and it was wonderful. We learned a lot because she was able to put everything into context. Duxbury has beautiful old properties.

Visiting the King Caesar House gives you such insight into how people lived in the mid 1800's. Of course, this was a wealthy shipbuilder's home, not typical of how everyone lived. There are wonderful artifacts from ships including paintings of some of those built right...More
