The Town of Mattapoisett was founded in 1857 and is located in Plymouth County in the Buzzards Bay area near Cape Cod. The name Mattapoisett is believed to have come from an old Indian word meaning "a place of resting".
Those who get a chance to visit the Ship Yard Park or Ned's Point lighthouse will begin to understand the Wampanoag judgment that Mattapoisett is a place of rest.
