Homes and History of East Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts

Beautiful colonial home on the South Shore of Boston

Old & New come together in this antique home in Plymouth County, MA. Apparently, it was built before the East Parish of Bridgewater (now East Bridgewater), was founded in 1723.

It all starts with the purchase of land by settlers from the local tribe

In 1649, the Indian chief Massasoit deeded to Miles Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth, Commissioners appointed by the Colonial government at Plymouth, a tract of land which now includes the four Bridgewaters, a part of Abington, and also of Hanson, for 7 coats, a yard and a half in a coat, 9 hatchets, 8 hoes, 20 knives, 4 moose-skins, and ten yards and a half of cotton. It was purchased by 54 proprietors many of which did not settle there. This contract was made and executed on a small hill in East Bridgewater. This territory was called Satucket.
East Bridgewater became an antique settlement dating back to the 1649 as an expansion of local plantations and initially part of Olde Bridgewater in the Plymouth Colony, in Plymouth County since 1685. It was the East Parish and it was founded in 1723. It separated from Bridgewater completely upon incorporation which occurred in 1823.

In 1723, the east end of the North Parish of Bridgewater, which then included what is now the towns of West and North Bridgewater, together with 9 persons of the South Parish, (now Bridgewater), viz: Barnabas Seabury, Thomas Latham, Charles Latham, Nicholas Wade, Nathaniel Harden, Thomas Hooper, William Conant, Isaac Lazell, and Joseph Washburn, was made by the General Court, the East Parish of Bridgewater. The first meeting-house was built before the parish was formed, having been raised in 1720.

Home construction in East Bridgewater in the 1700s

With this historic profile, it shouldn’t surprise that there was an intense home construction activity in the area. Homes were built in a fairly simple way, compared to today’s standards of home building, but they were built solid and built to last…and they lasted.
There are several examples of 1700s homes in the East Bridgewater area. They easily survived centuries of use and exposure to the elements of the often harsh New England weather, but many have been demolished to make way to new homes, many burned down, others were renovated so much, especially in the structure, that they are hardly the house that was originally built. Others, luckily, have been preserved, restored or rehabilitated and can keep being East Bridgewater families’ welcoming homes.

Antique Properties: Restoration of MA 1700s colonial home for sale

There’s nothing more charming than antiques, whether it’s furniture, cars or homes. It’s a great opportunity and privilege to being able to restore the charm of an antique home in East Bridgewater, MA to its former glory.

Built in the 18th century

The property was originally built in the 1700s and we’re still in the process of finding out with reasonable certainty, exactly when the first brick was layed and maybe by whom.

In the meantime, we’re removing as much as possible of what is in the way of original features that add so much character and tell many stories of long lost ways of life in a home.

At the same time, we are strongly motivated to allow modern features and comforts to slot in a balanced and beautiful mix of old and new with the purpose of a comfortable life in a welcoming home.

No other property can be as meaningful as a home that witnessed most of American history starting way before America even existed. It’s a colonial home after all and retains almost all the original and valuable features, starting from the central fireplace stack, posts and beams, but it also boasts and large inground pool on a large lot, a horse barn with 3 stalls, hayloft and tac room, laundry room, central A/C and more.

There is no reason to have to choose between the warm Olde England feel and modern America comfort.

Pictures and more information will be posted as we near the time for marketing the property for sale hoping to find a great buyer for a property with rare charm and great features.

To stay updated, follow us or contact (call or text) 617-999-0269 or 617-921-9265 for info and to know immediately when the home is for sale officially.
