Cohasset Historical Society Celebrates Cohasset 250!
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.
