The Town of Whitman was founded in 1875 and is located in the Plymouth County area. It is named for its local resident Augustus Whitman and is sometimes referred to as “Boston’s Historical South Shore”.
Whitman is home to the invention of the Massachusetts State cookie which is the chocolate chip cookie. It was first baked and served in the Toll House restaurant. Whitman is also home to Peaceful Meadows Farm which is known for their ice cream and has been voted THE best ice cream in the state of Massachusetts.
The town also hosts a Fourth of July Field Day at the park with art and crafts and pie eating contests and other events. It's fun all day and there is something for everyone.
