|The Town of Hingham covers an area of 22.5 square miles and is just about15 miles south of Boston. The town’s history is reflected in its many immaculately kept antique houses, including the “Old Ordinary” on Lincoln Street, which now houses the Hingham Historical Society Museum. Derby Academy, founded in 1784, is the oldest co educational school in the country and Hingham’s First Parish Old Ship Church is the oldest wooden structure in the country in continuous use as a place of worship. Hingham is proud of its location on the water, including 21 miles of shoreline and construction of a new harbor park further expands the public use of Hingham Harbor. The acquisition of the South Shore Country Club by the municipality provides additional recreation opportunities for residents while preserving the suburban character of this historic seaside
community. Recreational areas include Bare Cove Park which has biking and walking trails around its 500 acres along Back River, World’s End which is a 250 acre peninsula overlooking Hingham Harbor with breathtaking views of Boston, and Wompatuck State park which includes 3,000 acres of woodland.
