Carver, MA was originally part of Plympton, Massachusetts but residents decided to incorporate in 1790 since many lived too far away and could not attend church in Plympton. Named for the first governor of Plymouth County, John Carver, the town now boasts a population of over 11,000 residents.
Carver was first known for large iron ore deposits found in nearby swamplands, which were used to create cooking tools. “Pope’s Point Furnace” was the town’s first iron works and operated for over 150 years; during the same time period, the town also became a hub for sheep shearing and lumber mills. When iron futures began to decline in the late 19th century, industrious farmers planted cranberry crops and by 1900 the town produced one-fifth of all cranberries in the United States.
King Richard’s Faire runs each fall from September to October and is New England’s largest Renaissance event. The Faire includes knights on horseback, artisans from around the world and host of unique food choices.
Edaville USA is a historic amusement park built around the railroad once owned by Ellis D. Atwood (EDA). Now, the park includes vintage amusement rides and hosts the National Cranberry festival.
Savery Avenue is site of the first divided highway in the United States which featured a row of trees both between and outside both roads for “shade and ornament for man and beast.”
As noted above, one moderately famous resident of Carver was Ellis D. Atwood. A notable cranberry farmer, Ellis also had an interest in railroads and purchased two locomotives along with freight cars when the Bridgton and Saco Railroad was dismantled in 1941. After the Second World War, he created a tourist railway that was an instant hit with neighbors, and quickly had to start charging for rides as demand soared. His railroad is widely regarded as one of the first heritage railroads in the United State.
