Japanese tile depicting the Myles Standish Hotel in Duxbury, circa 1890
Gift of Arthur Beane, Jr., 2010.024.002
A collectible souvenir tile featuring the Myles Standish Hotel and the Myles Standish Monument.
In 1871, a group of Boston entrepreneurs formed the Standish Shore Company and built a hotel known as the Standish House, later known as the Myles Standish Hotel. They also laid out plans for a large development of cottages around the hotel, only a portion of which came to fruition. The hotel, however, was tremendously popular, attracting visitors from Boston, New York and beyond. The hotel featured a golf course, daily concerts, weekly balls, and hosted regattas.
