Duxbury’s abundant rural beauty and history go back to our nation’s earliest days, with stories that infuse the sea, soil, and homes here. Stories that define the qualities and characteristics that shape this town’s identity. It is what makes Duxbury, well, Duxbury. Our sense of place. Your home, no matter where you’re from.
The work of the Duxbury Rural & Historical Society is right at the heart of it all. We believe that Place Matters—a belief that infuses everything we do. It shapes how we tend and preserve 150 acres of open space and guides our careful curation of the character and lore of our four historic homes. It is in the people, families, and friends of this community—you can see it in the faces of all of us at the annual DRHS Clark’s Island Picnic.
Please make a generous donation to DRHS and help open our doors and trails a little wider. Your gift of $10, $25, $100, $500, or even more, will help us immensely.
