Acushnet Massachusetts Massachushetts South Coast Communities
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; now the town hosts construction, manufacturing and agri/aquaculture industries. It is the original home of the Titleist golf ball.

Acushnet is a quiet, friendly community with many miles of winding, country roads. Residents take great pride in the town's schools, openness and feeling of family. Each fall, during the well known Apple/Peach Festival, Acushnet's growers, artisans and Historical Society welcome visitors from far and wide. *
