Cohasset, Massachusetts offers a rich tapestry of lush village greens, rustic colonial homes and ocean vistas of spectacular beauty. Cohasset began life a farming village and turned into a seafaring town in the 1800’s. It had several shipyards and a harbor crowded with fishing and merchant vessels. After the fishing industry waned in the early 1900’s, the beauty of the town began attracting the wealthy, who built some of the large summer cottages that can still be seen along the coast.
Today, the town is predominantly residential, many of its residents making the daily commute to work by bus, car or commuter boat from adjoining Hingham. Route 3-A bisects the town and provides a location for a multitude of large and small businesses.
At present, there are four active shopping malls within the town. Cohasset’s central village lies around a spacious common with a small pond, and includes specialty shops, the colonial First Parish Meeting House and St. Stephen’s Church with its 56 bell carillon that has offered Sunday concerts since 1824. The town has active Community and Arts Centers, three historical museums and the renowned South Shore Music Circus, as well as the Swim Club, two beaches and the recreational facilities of Whitney Woods Reservation and the Wompatuck State Park.
Along the shores of Cohasset Harbor are facilities for dining, sailing and a replica of the famous Minot’s light. Plans are in motion to extend and improve the waterfront area. Many town residents involve themselves in community activities and the educational system consistently ranks high among Massachusetts school districts. For other town tours visit .
