Home Care – Marion, MA
Marion is a town in Plymouth County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was 5,347 at the 2020 census.
Marion is a part of the South Coast region of Massachusetts, which encompasses the communities surrounding Buzzards Bay (excluding the Elizabeth Islands, Bourne, and Falmouth), Mount Hope Bay, and the Sakonnet River.
Marion was first settled in 1679 as "Sippican," a district of Rochester, Massachusetts. The name, which also lends itself to the river that passes through the north of town and the harbor at the heart of the city, was the Wampanoag name for the local tribe. The town was mostly known for its many local sea captains and sailors whose homes were there, although some small shipbuilding operations were on the harbor. By the late 1840s, however, tensions between the village of Mattapoisett and the town led to a battle that sought to redraw the town lines and effectively take over Sippican Village. This caused the villagers to form a committee, which went to Boston to petition for incorporation as its own town. Thus, with the help of a powerful local ally, the city was incorporated on May 14, 1852, and renamed Marion in honor of Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion. Mattapoisett was incorporated in 1857.
Since then, Marion's economy has relied chiefly on the waters of Buzzards Bay, both for fishing and the summer tourism industry. Recreational sailing is a major seasonal activity for residents and visitors.
