This historic summer cottage in Duxbury has been in the same family since 1876. James Currier and his father, Philip Currier, have worked hard to hold onto the property. It's part of a little row of oceanfront community known as The Ridge that hearkens back to a bygone era in Duxbury, as the surviving small cottages are now overshadowed by larger homes in the neighborhood. The Curriers recently renovated and restored their little cottage back to its original glory.
