Backroads of the South Shore is a collaboration of 13 organizations operating 19 important historic sites in 8 towns along the South Shore of Massachusetts. The group is dedicated to creating an awareness of the area’s historic gems and celebrating the heritage and spirit of the region.
The Aldens and Adamses, Winslows and Bradfords, Stetsons and Westons, Howlands and Harlows … are families of the old South Shore whose stories represent the settlement of the “Old Colony” of Plymouth in Massachusetts. Enjoy picturesque Early American houses where founding families made their homes.
Come discover for yourself. See the kitchens, the great rooms, parlors and bed chambers in which you would have made your home. Consider how you might have cooked dinner for your family of ten on an open hearth. How could you store food for the winter? Why did you choose this place? Who were your neighbors?
