Biography

1629 Alden House in Duxbury

John Alden House in Duxbury MA. Built in 1653, replacing the first house he built in 1629.

Probable birth place of David Alden.

By 1629, John Alden, Sr. and his family had moved to Duxbury, Massachusetts where they built their first family home, only 38 feet x 10 feet big, in which he would raise a family of 10 children. He would build a much larger home in 1653, which much of the business of Plymouth Colony was transacted as he served as court clerk. Today, this house, which stands on Alden Street, is operated as a Alden family history museum by Alden Kindred Society.
