Hingham, MA

The Town of Hingham, incorporated in 1635, covers an area of 25.04 square miles. The town’s history is reflected in its many immaculately kept antique houses, including the “Old Ordinary” on Lincoln Street, which houses the Hingham Historical Society Museum. Hingham’s tree-lined streets, white clapboard colonial homes and scenic harbor reflect the decidedly New England character of the town. Green farmlands, a town forest and the Wompatuck State Park give the community a rural flavor.
