Scituate Harbor is a beautiful harbor, anchored by the Scituate Light House dateing from 1811.
Scituate is a small town on Cape Cod Bay midway between Boston and Plymouth. Scituate was settled by a group of people from Plymouth about 1627, who were joined by immigrants from the County of Kent in England. The name Scituate is derived from "satuit," the Wampanoag term for cold brook. It refers to a brook that runs to the inner harbor of Scituate. Fishing and sea mossing were early industries. Scituate is still a working fishing harbor and also with a large amount of pleasure and sail boats. Scituate is home to two lighthouses; Old Scituate Light at the mouth of Scituate Harbor and Minot's Ledge Light located approximately one mile off Scituate Neck.
