History[edit]

Hingham was platted on Sept. 5, 1850, by Edward Hobart.[4][self-published source?] The land was acquired from Mrs. David Giddings, who had bought it from the U.S. government in 1846. A Hingham resident, Lemuel Tibbitts, who was a deputy county surveyor, did the platting. Streets on the original plat included Water, Center, Spring, South and Main Streets. The name "Hingham" was chosen after the town in Massachusetts.[4]
