More About Scituate Real Estate

Scituate Location

Scituate borders Cohasset to the northwest; Marshfield to the south; the Massachusetts Bay to the east and Norwell and Hingham to the west. Scituate’s shoreline is diverse, winding through salt marshes along the mouth of the North River to the sandy coast around Scituate Harbor to the exposed granite of Minot’s Ledge. Scituate Neck is home to one of Norwell’s most famous landmarks, Minot’s Ledge Light.

Route 3A is the major road running through the town which connects to Route 123. There are two MBTA commuter rail stations in North Scituate and in the Greenbush neighborhood which connects to an existing line in Braintree providing service to South Station in Boston.

Scituate Recreation

Scituate’s water resources offer a wealth of recreational activities for families from swimming, kayaking, and fishing to scenic boat tours. With five public beaches — Minot, Sand Hills, Egypt, Peggotty, and Humarock — residents can take advantage of a number of designated swimming and sunning areas. The Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary is ideal for fishing or whale watching.

For golfing enthusiasts, the Widow’s Walk Golf Course, ranked one of the best new golf courses in the U.S. by Golf Digest when it opened in 1998, is a rare treat. The 18-hole golf course is next to the North River, close to the ocean and was built with input from conservationists and known as “America’s first environment demonstration course."

Scituate History

Scituate was settled by Plymouth residents in 1627. The town draws its name from “Satuit” or the Wampanoag term for cold brook which references the brook that runs to the inner harbor of the town. Fishing made up a significant part of the Scituate economy in the 1700s and 1800s. Today the town still maintains a small working fishing fleet from its Town Pier to supply many of the commercial restaurants in town and along the South Shore. Lighthouses also play an important role in Scituate’s history.

One of the town’s most colorful stories surrounds a lighthouse on the northern edge of Scituate Harbor now known as Old Scituate Light. During the War of 1812, two daughters of the lighthouse keeper were able to successfully fend off a British naval raiding party by playing a fife and drum loudly. The British apparently had no idea the loud music came from just two young women and the incident became known as the “American Army of of Two” or “Lighthouse Army of Two.”

Two early ancestors of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln hailed from Scituate as did the first president of Harvard University, Henry Dunster.
