4th of July Parade, 1934 looking south on Washington St. Sprague Hall is at the right. 


One of the oldest community buildings in Duxbury, Sprague Hall reflects over a century of growth and development in the town Duxbury. Seth Sprague, a successful ship builder, trader and politician, built the original structure circa 1790 as the head house and sail loft for his shipyard. The home would not be converted to residential use until 1952 when it would be moved back from Washington Street to be restored and expanded adding an east and west wing as well as a rear wing creating the home’s T-shaped footprint.
