Established in 1640, Marshfield’s fertile land and marshes provided the early settlers with rich farmland and thriving homesteads. Later, the navigable North River spawned shipyards and with the building of the Boston to Plymouth Railroad, Marshfield became a favorite summer destination for well-to-do visitors.
Today, or course, Marshfield is a prosperous, residential community offering the benefits of an affordable lifestyle in a delightful waterfront setting. The schools are very good, as are community services. Recreational opportunities are virtually endless. The town is so pretty, with varied landscape and 5 miles of ocean beachfront and 20 miles of rivers, ponds, streams and marshes.
On a clear day a resident standing atop a hill overlooking the Atlantic can not only see Provincetown, 26 miles away. Marshfield blends the unique charms of New England colonial charm with seafaring flavor.
