Marshfield was originally part of the “New Colony of New Plimoth in New England,” established in 1620. But in 1632 Edward Winslow—third signatory to the Mayflower Compact—established the town as a separate settlement. By 1640 it was officially set apart from the Plimoth plantation. Today, the town retains much of its original charm through a series of smaller villages and is home to just over 25,000 people.
Marshfield is named for the salt marshes which border the town and is located on the South Shore where Cape Cod meets Massachusetts Bay. Much of Marshfield’s early industry centered around farming, cattle, and salt marsh haying.
During the 19th century, however, shipbuilding became a critical source of income with over 1000 ships built along the North River. In addition, Marshfield was the site of one of the first factories to manufacture nails by machine. The town is also famous for Brant Rock, which Reginald Fessenden used as the base for his transatlantic radio antenna.
In Marshfield, nature abounds. Make sure to stop by the Daniel Webster Wildlife Preserve and discover some of the unique wildlife that calls the South Shore home. If you prefer manicured greens to wild trails, try the Green Harbor Golf Club for a great 18-hole walking course.
Marshfield has enjoyed the presence of more than a few famous residents. In the 19th century, opera singer Adelaide Phillips called the town home, while Josiah Winslow was the first native-born governor of the Plymouth County. More recent additions to the town’s roster include Steven Tyler, Joey Kramer, and Brad Whitford of the massively popular band Aerosmith.
