Acushnet MA is a small agricultural “Right to Farm” community in Southeastern Massachusetts with a population of about 10,544 according to the 2017 census.
It was first settled in 1659. It had been included as a part of three separate towns throughout its history. It was formerly the northeastern section of the town of Dartmouth, which included the towns of Westport, New Bedford, and Fairhaven.
In 1787, New Bedford separated from Dartmouth and included the lands of Fairhaven and Acushnet.
The name “Acushnet,” comes from the Wampanoag “Cushnea,” meaning “peaceful resting place near water,” originally designating the fact that the tribe which sold the land to the Puritans inhabited the lands leading up to the river.
- 1910 – The Acushnet Process Company (now the Acushnet Company), was founded in the town. (known for the Titleist brand name). Philip E. Young was one of the founders of the company. SRG recently listed the home he lived in at 32 Huttleston Ave in Fairhaven, with his wife back in the early 1900s.
