The Hingham Shipyard
Today we are going to take a look at the vibrant Shipyard Community in Hingham. It’s a great and convenient place to call home in an awesome town. It is a modern and sought after neighborhood which offers a unique blend of historical charm and contemporary living.
You may be surprised to know that the Shipyard used to be…well a Shipyard! In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Hingham shipyard was renowned with it building many notable vessels which include probably the most notable vessel, the USS Constitution which is known as “Old Ironsides” and is the oldest American Warship that is docked in Charlestown.
Today the shipyard looks a lot different. It is a thriving mixed-use development that combines residential, commercial and recreational spaces. The neighborhood offers a variety of housing options which include luxury apartments, townhomes and condominiums where many of them have stunning views of the harbor and 500 boat marina.
Living here offers numerous benefits which include direct access to Hingham Harbor, opportunities for boating, kayaking and paddleboarding. The neighborhood is pedestrian-friendly with walkable streets, scenic promenades and beautifully landscaped parks. It’s a great community where residents can enjoy leisurely strolls along the waterfront, visit nearby shops, boutiques and restaurants. The neighborhood also boasts convenient amenities such as a grocery store, fitness centers, yoga studios, a movie theater and a variety of retail and dining establishments.
Some notable restaurants are Alma Nove, Whalburgers and the Trident Galley and Raw Bar. Fun fact, Whalburgers and Alma Nove are owned by the Whalberg Brothers.
The community also hosts various events and activities throughout the year which include outdoor concerts, farmers’ markets and art festivals.
Plus the Shipyard offers easy access to the city of Boston. The shipyard is home to the Hingham Ferry Terminal which provides a convenient scenic ferry ride into downtown Boston. It’s a commuter's paradise.
