This week the Duxbury Historical Commission received the blessing of the Board of Selectmen to proceed with their efforts to place the Myles Standish homestead site on the National Register of Historic Places.

Commission chair Robert “Terry” Vose asked for and received a unanimous vote of selectmen to support the committee in their application to the National Register of Historic Places, which is administered by National Park Service/Department of the Interior.

The Myles Standish homestead site, or cellar hole, is located on Standish shore and dates to the mid-1630s.

Vose said it may take up to a year to gather all the information necessary to make the application.

There are ten National Register of Historic Places sites in Duxbury, said Vose. They include the King Caesar House, the First Parish Church, the Tarkiln School and the Wright Memorial Library among others. The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the nation's historic places worthy of preservation.
