This wooded area located at the intersection of East Squantum St. and Quincy Shore Dr. was the seat of the Sachem of the Massachusetts Indians. Chief Chickataubut was Sachem in 1621 when Captain Myles Standish and the Indian guide Squanto visited. Moswetuset is Algonquin and can be translated to mean "site of the great house" or "site of the great Chief's house." The site has not changed much since then. It is free and open to the public.
