Alden House Historic Site is part of the original property granted to Mayflower Passengers John Alden and Priscilla Mullins in 1627 and home to generations of their descendants. Their courtship was immortalized as one of America’s great love stories in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem “Courtship of Myles Standish”. The couple moved to Duxbury c. 1630 where they raised 10 children, built a home, and became prosperous farmers while John also served as one of Plymouth colony’s leaders. Now designated a National Historic Landmark, Alden House Historic Site is still owned by the Alden family through the Alden Kindred of America.
A reproduction barn provides visitor services including a gift shop and restroom. The building is climate controlled and handicapped accessible. Bus parking available; picnic tables.
