Freetown, Massachusetts

Information and resources for the community of Freetown, MA.

Settled by the Pilgrims and their descendants in 1659, Freetown is one of the oldest communities in the United States.

It is a pastoral community with a dash of maritime history, thanks to its location on the Taunton and Assonet Rivers. Beautiful Long Pond provides boating, fishing, and swimming – and it’s more of a lake than a pond, measuring roughly one-mile wide by four-miles long, with 11 miles of shoreline, and containing three islands within its boundaries! Freetown hosts a ball field-sized replica of Fenway Park where little leaguers develop their big-league swings.
