Mattapoisett Places

Mattapoisett, MA, is a seaside community located directly to the east of Fairhaven on Route 6. It was incorporated as a town on May 20, 1857, but prior to that it was a village within the Town of Rochester. After 1800, the town grew to be a renowned ship building community, supplying vessels of varying size and tonnage to the shipping and whaling industries.  The last vessel to be built in Mattapoisett was the bark Wanderer, launched in 1878. Following the decline of the whaling industry and the age of sail, the town became a “summering place” for residents of New Bedford and Boston.
