Cohasset Historical Society The Cohasset Historical Society
(10)

Incorporated originally as an outgrowth of the Committee On Town History, the Cohasset Historical Society has been collecting, safeguarding and exhibiting artifacts relating to Cohasset's historic past since 1928. Headquartered at 106 S. Main St. in the town's original 1903 library, the Society operates two additional seasonal museums in the center of town. The ca. 1760 Bates Ship Chandlery houses our Maritime Museum and the 1810 Captain John Wilson House interprets life in Cohasset during the 1800s. Our society has a significant collection of clothing and textiles dating from the 1700’s throughout the mid 1900’s. The Society’s Helen Howes Vosoff collection of theatrical artifacts records the history of summer performing arts in Cohasset from its start in the 1800’s to its present day South Shore Music Circus.

Mission: The Cohasset Historical Society's mission is to collect, preserve, and present the history of Cohasset through acquisitions, exhibitions, research, events and programs on local and regional history.

Places to remember: Hugo’s Lighthouse

In the location of present day Atlantica, Hugo Ormo opened Hugo’s Lighthouse in 1940 after the success of his other restaurants, Kimball’s Lobster Shop and Hugo’s Annex. Originally from Hungary, Ormo eventually settled down in Cohasset after immigrating to the U.S. and marrying Cohasset local, Edith Kimball. Hugo’s Lighthouse was renowned both locally and internationally for its delicious and fresh seafood and breathtaking location. Patrons could select their own lobster from indoor ocean pools for their dinner. Sold in the 1990s, it is well remembered for family dining, celebrations, and beautiful views.

The Beechwood Meetinghouse and Museum

Formerly the Beechwood Congregational Church, the Beechwood Meetinghouse and Museum began construction in the early 1860s and was officially dedicated in January of 1867. Mrs. Clarissa Harris led the movement to construct the Church because she was concerned by the absence of religious services in the Beechwood area.
Today, the Meetinghouse is owned by the Historical Society and is used to showcase the history of Cohasset’s fire and police departments as well as the Beechwood community. It houses the Society’s two antique hand tub pumpers as well as acts as a gathering place for the community.

Citizen Profile: “Resolution” Tower

Mrs. Daniel Tower was dubbed “Resolution Tower” for her determination and heroic work during the Revolutionary War. She is said to have carried water in barrels from Lilly Pond to water the corn fields during a drought while the men were at war. Her work allowed Cohasset to stand strong against the British and survive the war. MacIvor Reddie captured her story by painting a mural of her heroic efforts in the rotunda of the Pratt Building.

Take a peak inside the historic Captain John Wilson House!

Built in 1810, Captain John Wilson lived here with his wife, Hepsibah, and their nine children. The first floor of their home was used as a ship’s chandlery while the second floor was the family’s residence. The house was donated to the Cohasset Historical Society in 1957 where it acted as the Society’s first headquarters. The house was restored in 2005 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Citizen Profile: Dorothy Bates

In celebration of National Women's History Month and
Girl Scout week the Historical Society spotlights Dorothy Bates. Dorothy Bates was a math teacher at Cohasset Junior High School remembered by many for her daily quizzes. She was an active leader in the Girl Scout community beginning in her youth, when she received the Golden Eagle Award. She revitalized Cohasset's Girl Scout program in the 1950s and held leadership positions including, troop leader, neighborhood chairman, and director of the Girl Scout Day Camp held at Wheelwright Park each summer. Her belief in and dedication to the Girl Scouts is evident in a 1987 quote she gave to the Cohasset Mariner, "I truly believe Girl Scouts has given our young women the opportunity to dare-- to inspire them to try." #nationalwomenshistorymonth #girlscouts #cohasset #history #citizenprofile

Citizen Profile: John M. Washington

John M. Washington was born into enslavement in Fredericksburg, VA on May 20, 1838. In 1861 he escaped with important details about Confederate military movements and locations. He made the perilous journey through Confederate lines and crossed the Rappahannock River where he delivered the information to the Union. When it was discovered that Washington had escaped with this information he was forced to flee the war to avoid capture. He found employment in the District of Columbia as a "sign painter." He eventually came to live in Cohasset with his son, James A. Washington where he died in 1918. His memoir, "Memorys Of The Past", has been studied as one of the few examples of personal slave narratives.

The area from where Washington escaped is shown on the map below.

Loved all the guesses!

These children's collars are made from milkweed. Milkweed is a plant with a pod that contains a silky yellowish-white material. The silk from the milkweed plant was used to decorate textiles like collars, capes, hats, and bonnets during the early 19th century. A Boston Globe article from 1891 details the many creative ways milkweed could be incorporated into "fancy work". The author suggest using milkweed on "mantel scarfs," "handkerchief and glove cases," "saddle bags," and "book-covers." Unfortunately , surviving garments decorated with milkweed are exceedingly rare.

Does Cohasset have any presidential connections?

Yes!

In August of 1925 President Calvin Coolidge came to Cohasset to visit Oaks Farm. The owner of the farm, Clarence W. Barron, was a friend and financial adviser to Coolidge. Barron noted that Coolidge "inspected passively the herds of Ayrshire and Guernsey cattle" and enjoyed the carillon during his visit.

Cohasset was also the home to an ancestor of President Lincoln. Mordecai Lincoln lived near Bound Brook. He established mills in both Cohasset and Scituate.

These photos depict Coolidge's visit to Oaks Farm as well as Mordecai Lincoln's house. Unfortunately, the house burned down in 1919.

Citizen Profile: Britton Nichols

In recognition of Black History Month the Cohasset Historical Society features Britton Nichols. Nichols served in the Revolutionary War a total of six months and seventeen day between 1777-1780, earning 13 L 2s 8p in wages.

It is speculated from Nichols' enlistment dates that he participated in the Battle of Saratoga along with Ambrose Bates and several other men roused from Cohasset and Hingham.

Britton Nichols' origins are unknown, as is the reason he chose to enlist from Cohasset. Some suggest that he could have been recruited and paid by the town to help fulfill the required quota of men Cohasset had to supply for military service. Others suggest that he was a slave owned by a Cohasset family.

Not much is known about Nichols' life after the Revolutionary War but he does not appear in the published genealogies of either Cohasset or Hingham so he may not have stayed in the area.

Loved all the guesses!

This is a motoring or driving hood used by women in the early 20th century. The use of automobiles proliferated after the Ford Model T was introduced in 1908. It was the first car to be mass produced and made automobiles more affordable. A motoring hood was used to protect the wearer from dirt and debris while driving. This version of the motoring hood was made with silk and lace and featured isinglass to provide vision. It has two snaps in the back and long tails to wrap around the neck.

Citizen Profile: Thomas Loney

In celebration of Black History Month the Cohasset Historical Society recognizes Thomas Loney. Mr. Loney was born a slave on a plantation in Virginia in 1833. With the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861 he ran away and joined the navy in the North. He served nearly 4 years in the navy where his integrity and truthfulness was so highly valued that "his sole testimony in court saved 12 colored men from hanging."

After the war he was brought to Cohasset by Loring Bates, a well known ship owner in town. He worked in Bates' stables for 8 years until he started his own pig farming business. Thomas Loney was known as a "substantial and respected citizen" of Cohasset and held minor town offices. He lived on Pleasant street with his wife Marion and owned a pew in one of the town churches.

In the photo below Mr. Loney sits in his "swill cart" that he used to pick up food scraps to feed to his pigs.

Does the Maritime Museum have a ghost?

The Maritime Museum was originally a ship chandlery owned by the Bates family. Many visitors claim to have had paranormal experiences. It is thought that the last owner of the Bates Fishing business, John Bates, still resides in the building. Hans Holzer, a famous paranormal investigator, visited the building in 1964. Holzer would have been 100 years old yesterday.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day was first officially observed in 1986 with the purpose of honoring the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 1929, he became one of the most influential voices to speak out for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement.
He won many awards including a Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 and a Grammy in 1971 for his speech, " Why I Oppose The War In Vietnam".

This pamphlet is from an Interfaith Memorial Service held in Cohasset on April 7, 1968 when the town came together to celebrate and mourn Dr. King. Over 200 people attended the memorial where Reverend Roscoe E. Trueblood of First Parish Unitarian Church read excerpts from King's letter written from Birmingham jail.

Citizen Profile: Deacon Isaac Lincoln III

Born on August 6, 1717 to Isaac Lincoln II and Sarah Cummings, Isaac Lincoln III would grow up to be called "Father of the Town". Lincoln was a major advocate for the separation of Cohasset from Hingham, petitioning for town rights for twenty years. Lincoln was also a devoted patriot. He acted as a representative for the town in the Correspondence Committee in 1774 and 1775. Upon his death on March 1, 1776 he had been a farmer, a Constable, a Selectman, a Town Clerk, a Deacon, and the First Moderator of Cohasset.

The image shows the Lincoln Homestead, originally built by Isaac Lincoln's grandfather, Mordecai Lincoln.

When was the First Town Meeting?

The first town meeting of the newly formed Cohasset took place May 7, 1770. Deacon Isaac Lincoln was chosen to be the moderator.

A town meeting is a form of direct democracy where members of the community come together to legislate policy and budgets for local government. It is a popular form of government still used today, especially in New England. The moderator is an elected official and presides over meetings.

The photograph below was taken March 4, 1889 and shows Cohasset residents gathering in front of Town Hall in preparation for a meeting. #cohasset #history #townmeeting #localhistory #Cohasset250

The Cohasset Historical Society celebrates Cohasset 250

Why is Cohasset so young?

Cohasset is only 250 years old because it was originally part of Hingham.

This changed on January 17, 1770 at a Hingham Town Meeting when citizens voted to divide the town's Common Land in Conahasset, laying out shares of the uplands for qualified landowners.

The 2nd Precinct of Hingham was officially incorporated into a separate district by the name of Cohasset on
April 26, 1770 by the Act of the Great & General Court.

The map below shows "the manner of dividing the Common land January 17, 1769-70."

Attention Property Owners ! ~ Long time Metal Detectorist looking for yards, old houses, farms, and other historically inhabited areas to check out with the metal detector, looking for old coins, relics, etc. Have you previously lost jewelry in your yard and you're certain its somewhere on the property ?, I can search for and possibly find it while there !, I collect and primarily seek out old US coins. I'll search out the area, fill in any holes, and lay out and present all of the finds once done for the property owner to check out, and we can determine what we/they want to do with the items, I'll buy out any coins that I happen to be interested in !. I drive through Cohasset, Norwell and back and forth end to end down 228 on a daily basis, and am constantly wondering what might be buried in the yards surrounding all those houses that are mostly all from the early 1700's to early 1900's, So lets find out ! Shoot me an email at [email protected] ~ For those concerned about the condition of the lawn, we can wait until the fall to come check the area as well, so that by the time the grass begins to come back up, there will be no signs of any previous digging !
Fun adventure.
**Help Support the Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery Memorial Campaign** @SSHMarinersGenealogy The Descendants of Sailors’ Snug Harbor Mariners have been reaching out to Historical and Genealogical Societies, Museums, Military Veterans Groups, and Concerned Citizens, to invite them to join a Letters of Support Campaign to support their efforts to gain access to the old Sailors’ Snug Harbor Cemetery on Staten Island, in New York City, to honor their Ancestors and all of the 6,500 Merchant and Naval Mariners interred there (1834-1976), by installing a Memorial Monument (Obelisk) and holding an annual Memorial Service. Some of the Mariners were famous Sea Captains and some sailed on famous Merchant and Naval ships dating back to the American Revolution. Many were just average seamen whom sailed and endured for many years on the sea under arduous conditions. The Mariners were from many areas of the United States, Canada, and foreign countries. https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/2244490/sailors-snug-harbor-cemetery Sadly, the Sailors' Snug Harbor Cemetery is devoid of gravestones or markers, except for 15 remaining gravestones. The Cemetery is closed and not open to the public. The Board of Trustees of Sailors' Snug Harbor have rejected the Descendants' requests to access the SSH Cemetery to honor their Ancestors. https://nypost.com/2018/12/29/caretakers-shoot-down-plans-for-monument-for-fallen-sailors/ The Descendants are collecting Letters of Support to persuade the Trustees of Sailors’ Snug Harbor to change their decision. You can help support the Descendants by writing a Letter of Support using the Support Letter Writing Instructions at the following link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1sZv5VFLNWw0HA-pW2i33RhbgVFQ6oExx Sailors’ Snug Harbor has a very interesting history. It was one of the first large scale retirement facilities in the United States and the first established for Merchant Mariners. It was founded by the Randall family whom were New York City Merchant Sea Captains and Privateers during the French Indian War and Patriots during the Revolutionary War. Alexander Hamilton was a friend of the Randall family and their Attorney. He helped draft the Robert Richard Randall Will in 1801 to create the SSH Trust which funded the SSH Retirement Home. During its 140+ years of operation (1833-1976) approximately 16,000 Mariners resided there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailors%27_Snug_Harbor

The Cohasset Historical Society recently acquired the Beechwood Congregational Church, which has been renamed The Beechwood Meetinghouse and Museum, which will serve as a multi-purpose facility. In addition to its availability as a rental venue for lectures, concerts, weddings and group functions, the facility will also have space dedicated to the permanent display of two antique fire fighting handtub pumpers, a collection of fire and police artifacts and memorabilia, as well as exhibits chronicling the rich history of the Beechwood community. The Historical Society also has a collection of various old tools, farming equipment, desks, and other furniture, much of which the they would like to display, yet much of it is in need of repair/restoration. Does anyone know of a person that performs restoration services to old furniture and related items like this? The Society is looking for someone to help restore these items so that they are display-worthy to the public. With Cohasset’s 250th birthday celebration quickly approaching in 2020, and with the Museum expected to be a main attraction during this celebration, the goal is to find someone to begin this project as soon as possible. Please contact me if you happen to know of someone that might be able to perform these services for the Cohasset Historical Society. Thank you very much for your time.
