They lived in the home he built a little northwest of Kingston Landing in Kingston, Plymouth County, Massachusetts after 1674.

Their home in Kingston, built in 1675, is still standing and open to the public today. According to tradition, the Indians attempted to burn the house during King Philip's War. John Bradford discovered the fire. He spied an Indian on Abrams Hill waving a blanket and shouting to his fellows, and shot him. But on approach, he could not find the body. After the war, the Indian met Bradford and showed him the scars of his wound.
