Summer Party @ World’s End! Wednesday!
Kick off your summer at the World’s End Summer Solstice
Located in Hingham,World’s End, is an amazing take….251 acres of the finest land on the South Shore. It’s a GREAT walking sanctuary, and on Saturday, June 21st there will be a Summer Solstice Celebration with some GREAT live music provided by the Aldous Collins Band. Relax, eat, drink and enjoy watching the amazing sunset over the city of Boston. It opens/starts at 5pm, and ends roughly at 8:30 after the sunset.
We’ve always thought World’s End would be a GREAT place for a casino and hotel resort, or possibly where the new Paragon Park should sit, but we appreciate nature and undeveloped land. We’ll leave it alone….
If you’ve never walked ‘World’s End’, do it! You’ll plan a return trip.
World’s End was once an island at high tide, but colonial farmers dammed the salt marsh to grow hay and cleared almost all the trees for cropland. In the 1880s, wealthy Boston businessman John Brewer built a farming estate. In 1890, he hired Frederick Law Olmsted to design a large subdivision. While the homes were never built, four miles of carriage roads remain.
Tides once again nourish former salt marsh through specially built culverts, which promote habitat health and diversity. Grasslands maintained by carefully timed mowing provide important habitat for the birds that depend on them, as well as native plant species. And Olmsted’s designed landscape is preserved through mowing, pruning, cutting, and planting.
World’s End was once one of Massachusetts’ most threatened coastal landscapes. In 1890, plans were drawn up for a 163-house residential subdivision. In 1945, the property was short-listed for the site of the United Nations headquarters, which ultimately found its home in New York City. Twenty years later, it was eyed as a possible site for a nuclear power plant. But in 1967, thanks to local commitment and tremendous fundraising efforts, dedicated residents from Hingham and surrounding communities, and The Trustees, were able to preserve this special place.
