“The most beautiful Main Street in America.” That was how Eleanor Roosevelt described Hingham’s idyllic Main Street, with its stately homes and canopy of trees. Approximately 15 miles south of Boston, Hingham covers an area of about 22.5 square miles and features 21 miles of picturesque shoreline. Looking much as it did when Mrs. Roosevelt wrote those beautiful words, Hingham has retained its historical charm while becoming a thriving modern community.
