Norwell Massachusetts Homes For Sale
The Town of Norwell is located in Plymouth County, situated along the picturesque North River, 21.2 square miles and still retains much of its past rural character. Norwell was originally settled in 1636 as part of the settlement of Satuit (later Scituate), which encompasses present day Scituate and Norwell. In 1849, the portion of Scituate now known as Norwell broke away from Scituate and incorporated as South Scituate. Later, in 1888, the Town incorporated again as the Town of Norwell.
Named for Henry Norwell, a local dry goods merchant, shipbuilding became a major industry during the 1700's through the early 1800's. Because of this industry, it created a significant real estate market in Norwell, MA. Some of the finest frigates, schooners and merchant vessels to ever sail were produced in Norwell. Many historic homes can be viewed along the beautiful tree lined streets of Norwell, as well as plentiful new construction making Norwell a lovely combination of real estate value. Today, Norwell is an affluent suburban community with over 10,000 residents and provides modern schools, shopping, churches, libraries, health facilities, a wild life preserve and other support facilities as well as two large industrial parks. Many of the single family homes in Norwell are set on wooded lots with one acre zoning. Recently Norwell was named as the most stable value in terms of equity gain in the state of Massachusetts.
