Dighton, Massachusetts

Information and resources for the community of Dighton, MA.

Dighton is rural southeastern Massachusetts at its best.

Villages and country sides, neighborhoods and farms, and small-town charm. The town’s coastline on the federally designated “Wild and Scenic” Taunton River gives some parts of Dighton a coastal vibe. Dighton prides itself on excellent schools (in partnership with neighboring Rehoboth), a variety of small businesses, the newly created Sweets Knoll State Park, and a “can-do” New England attitude.
