Cohasset Common - #30, Card

5x7 card

Although many New England towns have replaced the commons obliterated by growth, the Cohasset Common is an original. This painting captures three of its best-loved buildings, the Unitarian Church (the First Parish), the Second Congregational Church, and the Town Hall. 

Because of these buildings and the Common's other examples of Georgian, Greek Revival, and Second Empire styles, Cohasset is on the National Register of Historic Places. Settled in the 1670s, the area was part of Hingham until 1770, after which it became Cohasset. A fishing and shipbuilding town, Cohasset retained its seaward orientation until late in the 19th century when its scenic waterfront and proximity to Boston made it a prime residential community as well.
