From the North: Take State Route 3 south from Boston
(Rte. 95 or Rte 128) to Plymouth and Cape Cod. Get off at Exit
11, the Duxbury/Pembroke exit. At the end of the ramp, head east towards
Duxbury on Rte. 14. Bear right on Rt. 14 just beyond the Police Station. In
about 2 miles, Rte. 14 intersects with Rte. 3A at a traffic light. Continue
straight through the traffic light less than a mile until you come to a
small group of stores. Watch for Railroad Avenue entering on the right just
past Millbrook Market. Turn right onto Railroad Avenue which ends shortly at
Alden Street. Almost directly across Alden Street is the entrance to the
Alden House Historic Site.
From the South: Take Route 3 north from Plymouth or Cape Cod. Get off at Exit 10, the Duxbury/Kingston exit. Turn right at the end of the exit ramp on to Route 3A (Tremont Street). Continue north for about miles past the Mayflower Cemetary (where many later members of the Alden family are buried) and Duxbury Town Hall. At a sharp curve in the road, take a right onto Alden Street (there is a large "library" sign on the corner) past the Judah Alden House on the corner. Passing the Duxbury Art Complex on the right, you will come to the Alden House Historic Site around the next bend in the road, on your right.
