Somerset, MA Homes & Real Estate
Somerset is bordered by Swansea on the west, Dighton on the north, Fall River on the east (across the Taunton River).Somerset was first settled in 1677 on the Shawomet lands, and was officially incorporated in 1790. It was named for Somerset Square in Boston, which was, in turn, named for the county of Somerset in England. It was once a vital shipping point, and after the War of 1812 it was one of America's chief distribution points. In 1872, it became the site of a major coal port, and in the early 20th century a large cannery existed in the town. As neighboring Fall River's industry grew, it absorbed much of Somerset's, and the town took on more of a suburban character.
