The Duxbury Alms House Collection (1891-1896) consists of building bids, contracts and instructions for a new Alms House in Duxbury on Depot Street, 1896. The construction specifications were drawn up by Lawrence Bradford.
The DuxburyAlms House was located on Depot Street in Duxbury, MA. The original structure burned down and a new building was constructed in 1896.
somewhere in the archives there is a photo the alms house also called te Poor Farm. Surplus street was once called Poverty Lane because it led to the Poor Farm

I grew up across the street from the Alms House and remember that a family named Messier owned it when I was young. The father was a doctor of dentistry. During their time in the house I believe there was a fire there. Later, I think the Daley family owned it for a while.
