The Duxbury Rural and Historical Society announces that the theme this year for the annual “Christmas at the King Caesar House” will be “A Christmas Carol by Dickens” with rooms decorated to reflect the settings or characters of the book.

The King Caesar House was built in 1809 for Ezra Weston II and his wife, Jerusha Bradford Weston.  Weston was known as “King Caesar” for his worldwide preeminence in shipbuilding and shipping during the early 19th century.

The house will be open to the general public for tours on Saturday, December 15 and on Sunday, December 16, from Noon until 4 p.m.  Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students/seniors and children under 6 are admitted free.

Anyone interested in assisting with decorating or volunteering as a room hostess during the event should contact Alison Arnold at the DRHS office, at 781-934-6106 or email her at
