Alden House Historic Site
John Alden and Priscilla Mullins arrived in Plimoth Colony on the Mayflower in 1620 and were married about 1622. In 1627, they moved to land in Duxbury where they raised their 10 children. That land has never been out of the Alden family. Now designated a National Historic Landmark, the property welcomes visitors for tours of the c. 1680 Alden family home, archeological site, and grounds and offers hands-on programs that "bring history to life."
Alden House is open for tours Wednesday through Saturdays, noon to 4 pm, June through mid-October and at other times by appointment.
Admission: Adults $8, Children (3-17) $5. The grounds are open year-round; a cell phone tour provides highlights of the Alden family story.
