Halls Corner

South Duxbury is an area in the town of Duxbury, which includes Halls Corner, a large shopping district. Halls Corner consists of five streets (Standish Street, Bay Road, Washington Street, Depot Street, and Chestnut Street) coming together into a roundabout. Those streets contain many stores, such as grocery, clothing, gas, pharmacy, banks, eatery, consignment, flower, hair and nail salons, ice cream, wine and spirits, dentist, bakery, the South Duxbury Post Office, and many more. In previous years there was a train line from the Old Colony Railroad through South Duxbury, but it closed in the late 1930s. The site is now the Duxbury Clipper, a local newspaper.

The SAIL Line (Seaside Area Inter-town Link) bus, operated by GATRA (Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority), runs through Halls Corner, stopping at the Depot Plaza.
