Legendary Locals


Throughout Hingham's history there have been many men and women who have contributed to the town, state, country, and/or world in a significant way.  Their contributions vary greatly.  Some were reformers who fought for equality, while others were military figures who helped the United States win significant battles in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. 

A number of these citizens were born and raised in Hingham, while others settled here later in their lives.  In either case, the men and women described in this exhibit are a credit to Hingham and demonstrate how local individuals can have an impact on the world at large.  As Hinghamites we are proud to say that they lived and worked here.
