Scituate Harbor
Located half way between Boston and Plymouth, historic Scituate was first settled in 1628.   Shipbuilding was one of the earliest industries, establishing a seafaring heritage that continues today

The name Scituate is derived from an Indian word meaning "Cold Brook".  Natives pronounced it "Sit-chew-uht".

Historic sites include:

  • The 1797 Cudworth House -First Parish Road
  • The Mann Farmhouse and Museum  on Greenfield Lane
  • The Old Bucket Homestead, home of 19th century author Samuel Woodworth
  • The Red School house on Cudworth road, built in 1873
  • Stockbridge Mill on Country Way, built in 1640, which still grinds cornmeal during historic tours.

Today, Scituate Harbor is home port to a small fleet of commercial fishing craft and pleasure boats of every description.  Deep sea fishing charters and whale watching excursions are available in season.
