About Duxbury

Duxbury is part of the Plymouth County. It was named after Duxbury, England. The town was first settled in 1627 as a part of the new town of Scituate, Massachusetts (now Kingston). In 1637 it became its own precinct and then in 1712 it officially separated from Scituate and became known as Duxbury. The Old Colony Railroad ran through what is now South Middleborough to reach Buzzards Bay between 1844-1852; this line later became part of the New York & New England Railroad system before being abandoned during World War II due to wartime traffic demands on railroads for troop transport and other military uses. The Old Colony's main line ran from South Station in Boston through Taunton westward towards Fall River where it split into two lines: one going north along with another railroad company's tracks up to Vermont; while another went south down Narragansett Bay towards Newport RI/Fall River MA via Providence RI (the "Ocean State").
