Marshfield Real Estate

Marshfield is a town located where Cape Cod Bay meets Massachusetts Bay 29 miles southeast of Boston. While the coastal community is known for its beaches and the population nearly doubles in the summer, the town’s 25,000 residents view the quiet community as a respite from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Many residents own single-family homes on generous lots close to water and near cranberry bogs and unspoiled wildlife. Named for its many salt marshes, Marshfield is also the site of several small forests and conservation areas, including the Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary along the Green Harbor River. The South Shore town spans 31.74 square miles with six separate zip codes and is home to eight different villages: Marshfield Center, Fieldston, Ocean Bluff, Rexhame, Brant Rock, Green Harbor, Marshfield Hills, and North Marshfield. The town recently built a new high tech high school in 2014 that boasts a marine fabrication laboratory, fitness center, robotics room, and TV studio.  Read more about Marshfield real estate.

More About Marshfield Real Estate

Marshfield Location

Marshfield borders Massachusetts Bay to the east; Duxbury to the south and southeast; Pembroke to the west; Norwell to the northwest; and Scituate to the north and northeast. During rush hour traffic, Marshfield is an approximate 40 minute drive to Boston but maintains its own thriving city center with shopping and numerous restaurants. Route 3, also known as the Pilgrims Highway, skirts the town along the Pembroke town line, accessed via the Route 139 exit. Commuters can catch the commuter ferry in Hingham or use the daily bus service connecting with the MBTA station in Braintree. The nearest train station is the Greenbush station in Scituate.

Marshfield Recreation

Marshfield’s acclaimed 5-mile-long public seashore comprises eight beaches including: Rexhame, Fieldston, Sunrise, Ocean Bluff, Brant Rock, Blackman’s Point, Blue Fish Cove, and Green Harbor or Burke’s Beach as locals have dubbed it. All are big tourist draws in the summer but offer resident parking stickers and waters suitable for swimming and sunbathing. Blackman’s Point is a beachfront property that for more than 50 years has been an RV resort and campground. A wide selection of dining and other water-related activities have grown up around this park.

Outdoor enthusiasts can also enjoy fishing, boating and hiking and biking around the wetlands that dot parks such as the McMillan Marsh Wildlife Area or the Hamus Nature Preserve.

The last two weeks of August are reserved for the Marshfield Fair, a traditional American country fair that has taken place the end of August every year since 1867. The fair boasts concerts, carnival rides and a vast array of exhibits and crafts. The fairgrounds host additional holiday-themed festivals throughout the year.

Marshfield History

As an early Pilgrim town, Marshfield still retains some of its historic character in several of its villages and was established as a separate settlement in 1632. One of the town’s best known settlers was Peregrine White, the first English child born in New England on the Mayflower while the ship was anchored near Provincetown on Cape Cod. Peregrine grew up in Marshfield, holding a number of offices there as well as serving in the Colony’s militia. He became well known for planting European fruit trees in Marshfield as well as in other parts of the Colony that endure to this day. His baby cradle, the first of New England births, has been preserved since 1620 and is on display at Pilgrim Hall in nearby Plymouth.

More recently Marshfield notable residents include Aerosmith rock band members Steven Tyler, Joey Kramer, and Brad Whitford, and the actor, Steve Carell and his wife Nancy. Carell bought the Marshfield Hills General Store where residents can still buy penny candy, muffins, coffee and small gifts. His sister-in-law runs this quintessential New England institution.
