Scituate is a seacoast town midway between Boston and Plymouth. It was initially settled in 1627 by a group of colonists from Plymouth, joined by immigrants from Kent, England. It derived its name from the Wampanoag word “satuit” meaning cold brook, referring to a brook that runs to the inner harbor of the town. The sea was historically an integral part of the community’s economy, and in 1810, a lighthouse known as the Old Scituate Light was erected on the northern edge of Scituate harbor. During the war of 1812, a British naval raiding party was deterred here by the two daughters of the light house keeper playing a fife and drum loudly. The girls and this incident became known as the “American Army of Two”.
Popular attractions in Scituate include the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, the Old Scituate Light, and the Lawson Tower; as well as walking trails, museums, shops and restaurants.
