Yachts For Sale In Hingham
The Town of Hingham, established in 1635 as a colonial fishing village, is a quaint, affluent suburb of Boston that is only 14 miles southeast of downtown Boston. Hingham is located on the south coast of Massachusetts in northern Plymouth County and on the southwest corner of Boston Harbor. Named after Hingham in Norfolk, England, it was first settled by English colonists in 1633 and incorporated in 1635. 20 years later, the land was purchased and deeded to the English colonists by the Wompatuck Native American people. Two Hingham landowners, Capt. Josiah Hobart and Ensign John Thaxler, represented Hingham’s residents in the transaction. President Lincoln’s ancestor, Samuel Lincoln, who came to Massachusetts in 1637, was also from Hingham village, England and settled in Hingham, MA. Though seven generations of Samuel Lincoln lived in Hingham, President Abraham Lincoln was not among them, but a replica of the Lincoln Memorial commemorating him is installed at Lincoln and North Streets. There is so much history here it is a great stop if you happen to be cruising the coastline by boat.
