Halifax, MA is a small town in Plymouth county originally settled by the Bosworth family of Bosworth Fields, England. Settlers occupied the area around 1669 and officially separated from Plympton in 1734. The name Halifax comes from a town of the same name in West Yorkshire, England; the town also shares its name with the capital city of the province of Nova Scotia, Canada.
The first industries in Halifax were lumbering and agriculture. Over time, the town also added iron furnaces, a wool mill and became involved in cranberry production. Perhaps the most notable effort made by the town of Halifax was to create a canal between Buzzards Bay and Massachusetts Bay. The plan was unsuccessful but with the railroad’s arrival in the 19th century the town became a haven for tourists and residents looking for a slower pace of life than in Boston.

For kids it’s worth a trip to nearby Plymouth, which features Nelson Park—a playground, splash pad, beach, and recreation fields right on the water.
The town of Halifax had several famous residents including the architect Alexander Parris and Congressman Joshua Cushman.
