The John and Priscilla Alden Family Sites are two properties in Duxbury, Massachusetts that have been designated National Historic Landmarks.

The two sites are the circa 1700 Alden House and the original 1632 Alden Homestead.

The Alden House is located at 105 Alden Street in Duxbury, Massachusetts and was became listed with the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

This is the house that John Alden moved to after his first homestead. It is believed to have been built in 1653 and may be built from materials derived from Alden's original home.

The other site, the Alden Homestead site, was the location of a significant amount of archaeological work by Roland Wells Robbins. The original home was excavated in 1960 and much nationally pertinent data was found that shed light on the lives of the first English settlers.

The Alden Kindred of America, Inc. is a non-profit organization that owns and preserves the John Alden House.
