Standish Shores, Duxbury

Standish Shores, Duxbury

Standish Shores is a private, quiet peninsula in Duxbury. Captain Myles Standish lived here, in an area that was known in the 1600s as the Nook. Now a monument to Captain Standish stands in the middle of a state park bearing his name on Standish Shores. The monument is visible to boats and helps mariners navigate the waters off Duxbury and Plymouth Bay.

Standish Road forms a loop, connecting with Crescent Street. The other main road, Marshall Avenue, dead ends near the shoreline. Standish Road empties into the traffic circle at Hall's Corner. It occupies the center of the shoreline in Duxbury, with Bay Road to the south and Washington Street to the north.

Standish Shores is residential. Exiting onto Hall's Corner, there are several shops, businesses and offices. The small area around Hall's Corner comprises the main "downtown" area in Duxbury.

There aren't any sidewalks along the roads on Standish Shores, but drivers are careful to go around their neighbors and friends when they are walking or riding bikes.

In the past several years, homes in this neighborhood have sold for prices between about $450,000 to upwards of $3 million.

The Duxbury public schools start with Chandler Elementary School, then the Alden School, Duxbury Middle School and Duxbury High School. Like much of Duxbury, many of the residents are raising their families here, or have raised their children and still live here.

Standish Shores sounds like a quiet community and somewhat old fashioned. Love the way you describe it.
