A beautifully scenic town along Massachusetts’s South Shore, Duxbury grew into prominence in the 18th century as a center for ship building and later in the late 19th century as a summer resort town. Visitors marvel at this idyllic seaside haven. The town has focused on conserving the many beaches, bogs, marshes, and forest that lay within its borders. Island Creek pond sits in Tinkertown village, just north of Mill Pond.
