Mattapoisett, Massachusetts

Information and resources for the community of Mattapoisett, MA.

When you walk through picturesque, seaside Mattapoisett Village, you feel transported back to a quieter time.

The town’s public wharf and numerous historic markers are reminders of its maritime history, when generations of seafaring families built homes – and lives – here. Today, Mattapoisett’s identity as a vacation spot is on display in places like Aucoot Beach and the Munro Preserve, popular for summer events. These two different, but complementary vibes converge at iconic Ned’s Point Lighthouse, which offers a lawn, a rocky shoreline, and wonderful views of Buzzard’s Bay – it’s not a bad kayaking or fishing spot, either!
