maintain, and enhance the assets, history, and other features within
the park. Keep up to date on what is happening with the FOW and also

State Park is located in Hingham, MA - just 35 minutes from downtown
Boston. Rich in history, this land was originally the property of
Indian chief Josiah Wompatuck who deeded the land to English Settlers
in 1665. During WWII and the Korean War it served as an ammunitions
depot for the U.S. military. Today it is a 3,526 acre park that extends
from Hingham into the neighboring towns of Cohasset, Scituate, and
