About Area

Originally an agricultural community embracing the headwaters of the Acushnet River, the residential Town of Acushnet has retained its rural atmosphere while also providing a home for various industries. Through the 1800s the town was the site of water powered factories and boat yards; in the 1990s the town hosts construction, manufacturing and agri/aquaculture industries. It is the original home of the Titleist golf ball.

Each fall, during the well known Apple/Peach Festival, Acushnet's growers, artisans and Historical Society welcome visitors from far and wide. (Narrative supplied by community)
