South Shore Home Book Review

Historic Hotel Reimagined

Architect Patrick Ahearn’s new book tells the story of a once grand seaside resort and its transformation into an elegant home overlooking Duxbury Bay.

“If not for a fortuitous change in the wind, a jewel of the South Shore might have been lost forever. In 1908, fire erupted at the Myles Standish Hotel in Duxbury, destroying a number of outlying buildings. As the blaze threatened to consume the elegant seaside resort, the air of fortune shifted and the rambling main building was saved from devastation.”
