About Hingham
map
The Town of Hingham was founded in 1635 and is located in Plymouth County about 15 miles south of Boston.

The town takes pride in their immaculately preserved antique homes which includes "Old Ordinary" that now houses the Hingham Historical Society Museum.

The Derby Academy which was founded in 1784 is the oldest co-educational school in the country. The town's First Parish Old Ship Church is the oldest church structure in the country and until this day continues to be used as a place of worship.
