Halifax MA

There is one pond in Halifax that is apt to be heard called by different names. One is Monponsett Pond. The word Monponsett is an Indian word meaning “near the deep pond”. The other is Twin Lakes, or East and West Monponsett Pond.According to tradition, the first family to locate here was John and Mary Tomson erecting a log house on what is known as Thompson Street today. This would later become the first house burned by the Indians in the trouble, which is known in history as King Philip’s War.

By an act of the General Court the Town of Halifax was incorporated on July 4, 1734 (New Style). We are the only town in the Commonwealth to have this honor. It was formed from parts of the towns of Middleborough, Pembroke and Plympton. On February 20, 1824 a part of the town of Bridgewater was annexed to Halifax, and on March 16, 1831, a part of the town of Plympton was annexed. On April 11, 1857, a part of Halifax was annexed to East Bridgewater and the bounds between the two towns established. On February 6, 1863 the bounds between Halifax and Plympton were established, and a part of each town was annexed to the other.
