We are located in Abington, Massachusetts twenty miles south of Boston in the Old Colonial Area of Southeastern Massachusetts. The area was settled by the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. The Pilgrims later migrated north and west of Plymouth and established the Old Colonial area of Massachusetts. One of the oldest towns in America, Abington is famous for its forests. The masts of the USS Constitution anchored in Boston Harbor were harvested from Abington’s forests and the ship itself is made largely from Abington white oak trees. American Patriot Paul Revere once worked at a bell foundry in Abington where he learned his trade.
Our workshop is located adjacent to the tracks of the Old Colony Railroad in a building in built in 1857 around the same time as the railroad was built. Still used today as a commuter rail line to Boston, the Old Colony Railroad ferried Union soldiers to the south during the Civil War.
Old Colony Woodworks has been making wooden boxes for more than sixteen years. Our first box, the Pilgrim, was designed to preserve the cremated remains of a friend from Plymouth, Massachusetts who passed away after a long illness. Thru word of mouth, referrals from friends, and encouragement from funeral directors our business slowly
grew as a part time business. Founded by Dave & Marion Priest, Old Colony Woodworks published its website in September of 2008. Since then, Old Colony Woodworks’ hand crafted wooden boxes and solid wood picture frames have been shipped to desitinations throughout the United States and Canada.
