Homes For Sale in Rockland, South Shore, MA
In the heart of Plymouth County, Rockland is located south of Boston and has almost 18,000 residents. It was initially settled in 1673 by European settlers who came to the Abington area. Rockland became a standalone town in March of 1874.
The town is named after the beautiful nature that residents take in on a daily basis. It’s very rocky, which made it better suited for industry and mills rather than farming. It’s well-known for the rich industrial history, and many shoe manufacturers created their businesses in Rockland. The town is thought to have created and distributed around half the Union Army’s shoes during the Civil War. Since these times, the mills have been renovated and repurposed for general housing and a place for local artists.
