Halifax Homes for Sale

The town of Halifax is situated in Southeastern Massachusetts and considered the Heart of Plymouth County. It is located 28 miles from Boston and 12 miles from Plymouth. It contains 11,285 acres; 1700 of it water and about 200 swamp. There is one pond in Halifax that is apt to be heard called by different names. One is Monponsett Pond. The word Monponsett is an Indian word meaning “near the deep pond”. The other is Twin Lakes, or East and West Monponsett Pond.

According to tradition, the first family to locate here was John and Mary Tomson erecting a log house on what is known as Thompson Street today. This would later become the first house burned by the Indians in the trouble, which is known in history as King Philip’s War. Samuel Sturtevant was one of the first settlers, establishing himself near Monponsett Pond. He is said to have built the first gristmill in the area off Furnace Street. Both families were very prominent in Halifax for many generations. Credit resourse info halifax-ma.org
