Fairhaven - A South Coast Beauty

The Southcoast of Massachusetts offers so much to the traveler and resident alike. From the secluded beaches and preserved colonial architecture to the abundant cultural offerings, this often overlooked coastline of the Commonwealth is a treasure to discover and experience.

have found your home in Fairhaven, or are simply visiting, you undoubtedly recognize how special this town and community are.

Fairhaven, originally the eastern part of the Dartmouth Purchase, seceded and incorporated in 1812. It is a delightful coastal seaport village with an irregular and captivating coastline. Sconticut Neck, Wilbur’s Point and West Island offer a view to the more recent past when during the 20th century warm weather cottages and cabins began to dot its shores and the warm waters of Buzzard’s Bay would entice bathers from June through September. The areas of East Fairhaven, Shaws Cove and Little Bay offer yet another perspective for those who call Fairhaven home with mid-century and farmhouse style residences and spectacular vistas from the hills along the coastline. Although over the years Fairhaven has grown in size, it has maintained its small town characteristics. From the annual Homecoming Day fair to Revolutionary war re-encampments, history seems to repeat itself. Whether you howeallen.com

Fairhaven


Fairhaven Center and Fort Phoenix

-

The Center of Fairhaven as it is dubbed today was originally referred to as Fairhaven Village according to historic maps, newspaper articles and various books written about this part of town. The Village features architecturally fascinating buildings of yesteryear. Notable examples are the French Gothic Town Hall, the Italian Renaissance Library and the Memorial Church, an impressive example of English Vertical Gothic. One cannot help but feel transported to another part of the World. These public buildings were given to the town by native son Henry Huttleston Rogers in the late 19th and early 20th century

encampments play out as a method of teaching younger generations about Fairhaven’s history. Fort Phoenix Beach’s bathing pavilion, sandy beach, tennis and basketball courts provide for athletic and leisure enjoyment. Much of the granite used in the construction of the public buildings in Fairhaven was quarried from nearby Fort Phoenix. H. H. Rogers favored the Fort Phoenix area himself and it was the former site of his 88 room mansion which was unfortunately dismantled in the early 20th century. Some of the architectural elements from this grand estate can still be found around town.

Well-preserved Greek Revival homes are interspersed with Colonial, Northeast Cape Style and Bungalow residences. A balanced blend of young families, retirees and professionals call the village home. The “Walking” village center offers a glimpse of its maritime past as well as its present, yet is not far from the modern conveniences that are part of twenty-first-century living. Big-box stores, service stations and grocers are all just a mile away, yet nicely grouped in the commercial district. Fort Phoenix, perched atop granite ledge, served as a strategic site and provided defense during the first naval battle of the Revolutionary war. In Summer and Autumn historic rehoweallen.com

Oxford Village | Riverside

Oxford Village, also known colloquially as Poverty Point, is the earliest settlement in what was later to become Fairhaven in 1812. Because the only bridge access across the Achusnet to New Bedford was located on Howland or Coggeshall street, many settlers chose this part of town in which to build their homes. The first public school in town was located on North Street and is now affectionately referred to as the Stone School. This historic area of town was the center of maritime commerce into the 1800s until the construction of the Fairhaven/New Bedford bridge was completed and many of the businesses and residents moved south to what is now called Fairhaven Center. This exodus of commerce and the wealth that went with it gave rise to the name “Poverty Point.� By the mid 19th century, Oxford Village was primarily residential. Today neighborhood features excellent examples of Federal, Colonial-revival, Shingle and Cape Cod-style homes, many of which have been lovingly restored to their original glory. Poverty Point offers excellent access to the Interstate Highway system and route 6 as well as the bridges to New Bedford. Neighborhood identity, like other parts of Fairhaven is quite strong and is evidenced by the care its residents give to their homes in this historic part of town. howeallen.com howeallen.com

Many notable people called this part of town home including Joseph Bates Jr. (founder of the Seventh day Adventist Church,) Joshua Slocum (Captain of the Spray, the vessel he used to become the first person to sail around the World alone), Manjiro Nakahama (the first Japanese person to live in America) and Charles Gifford (noted marine artist).

The Beach Communities

West Island

Wilbur Point

West Island was named for Stephen West, the son-in-law of John Cooke. Notable as one of the earliest vacation communities in North America, the Wampanoag tribe used to spend their summers here, bringing their cattle over the tidal causeway to graze on the pastures. Today a paved road and a modern sturdy causeway transport traffic on to the island.

Named for Horatio Nelson Wilbur, a descendant of the 17th century Wilbur family of Boston, this waterfront community was originally the family farm. The Delano family cemetery can be found there on Sconticut Neck Road. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's mother's family were Fairhaven natives, and the family homestead today is a Bed and Breakfast in Fairhaven Town center.

In the 1940s, West Island was laid out in a modern summer community called "Fairhaven Estates." Today's West Island is a blend of summer cottages passed down through the generations and year-round homes from modest to grand. Beautiful beaches surround the island. On the south end of the island, Town Beach features beautiful stretches of sandy beach with views to the Bourne bridge and Falmouth. A WWII era submarine watch tower still stands there as a testament to Fairhaven's marine history, and has become an icon to West Island. The beach at the southern-most end of West Island has been considered by many to be among the most beautiful in all of coastal New England. A marina and boat ramp are located just over the causeway on "Long Island." Two-thirds of the island is a state preserve, with hiking trails for exploration. West Island provides the feeling of being "away from it all" but is within minutes of modern shopping conveniences. howeallen.com

Sconticut Neck Many beaches can be found along the neck off either side of the Sconticut Neck Road. During prohibition the neck was notorious for "rum runners", since the many pathways to the water provided an ideal location to sneak illegal liquor onto shore. Today you can lose yourself on one of the beaches. Many different neighborhoods are located on the neck, from new suburban style sub developments to established summer retreats.

North and East Fairhaven

North Fairhaven

East Fairhaven

North Fairhaven was one of the earliest settled areas of Fairhaven. Its most prominent landowner was John Cooke, an original Mayflower passenger, who settled there about 1662. The site of Cooke’s homestead and his garrison are marked as historical spots. The area was primarily farmland until the 1890s when the Coggeshall Street Bridge opened allowing an easy commute between Fairhaven and the textile mills in New Bedford. The bridge brought about a population boom with French-Canadian and Portuguese families building homes, schools, churches and a small business district by 1925.

East Fairhaven maintained its rural farming atmosphere much longer than the rest of the town. The main roads in East Fairhaven once connected large farms. In the mid-twentieth century some of those farms were subdivided for residential housing. Stone walls and open fields are still quite plentiful in the area and a few family farms survive.

Today much of the property in North Fairhaven is residential, with a few restaurants and other businesses scattered along Main Street. Livesey Park on Glenhaven Avenue offers recreational opportunities with its ball fields, playground, tennis courts and skateboard park. Dattco, the commuter bus line to Boston, is conveniently located on Sycamore Street. Mega bus also operates from the Dattco terminal with direct, affordable service to New York City. St. Mary’s Church serves the Roman Catholic population of North Fairhaven and the Church of the Good Shepherd (Episcopal) is also located there. howeallen.com

What is now part of US Route 6 running through East Fairhaven was originally “the Mattapoisett Road” and still later a welltraveled route for vacationers headed to Cape Cod. Some of the older commercial buildings along the road were first built to cater to those seasonal travelers. There is saltwater shoreline along the southern edge of East Fairhaven and some properties near Shaw’s Cove and Little Bay offer picturesque water views. The East Fairhaven School, opened in 2007, serves about half of the town’s elementary school children. The Mariner soccer fields and Shaw Road little league complex are both located in East Fairhaven.

Historical Perspective | Centre Methodist Church

Centre Methodist Church By Tim Evans The first Methodist Church in Fairhaven was first built in 1830, but after 19 years they decided to seek a larger building and they sold the original Methodist church to the town and it was subsequently used as Fairhaven’s high school. What is known as the current Centre Methodist Church was built in 1841, but it was built by the Centre Congregational Society. They had split from the parent church, the First Congregational Church, located at the corner of William and howeallen.com

Centre Street They were not successful, however, so the Methodists were able to purchase the building. The biggest news story concerning the Centre Methodist Church was the fire which destroyed it on January 19, 1946. It was reduced to a roofless shell, but many valuable parish records and books were salvaged from the pastor’s study. There was never a cause discovered, since the cold January air had encased the ruins of the church in blocks of ice. The church resolved


immediately to rebuild, and chose the classic New England Colonial style. The new church rose quickly through the donations of church members, community members, and other churches. The congregation through the late 20th century began to dwindle and the the prospects of keeping the church operational was doubtful. In 2006, local businessman Steve Economos purchased the building with the hopes of making it into several housing units. The town would only allow a single family, church or educational use of the building however. So, Steve set out to transform the former house of worship into a home. Additions of modern kitchen and bathrooms, central air, and an impressive great room with a sweeping arched ceiling lend modern touches to a historic building. From every window there are beautiful views of the Unitarian Church’s green, the Fairhaven Town Hall, the Millicent Library or many other historic homes. The original Fellowship Hall on the ground floor of the building remains in an unfinished state.

The house was recently put under agreement, and Howe Allen Realty is proud to announce that The Northeast Maritime Institute will be purchasing the building to add to its campus in the heart of Fairhaven. The old church will provide administrative offices, student recruiting and lecture spaces. The former fellowship hall is planned to be restored to a space which can be used for school events as well as communitywide functions. Eric and Angela Dawicki anticipate exterior restoration in the future, restoring the wood clapboard siding. This is a new chapter in a building that has meant many things to many people over the years.

Fairhaven | Picnic on the Lawn

Picnic on the Lawn The annual Picnic on the Lawn is a benefit for the Fairhaven Historical Society. The inspiration for this event occurred four years ago when Howe Allen and Tim Evans went to visit their friends Luc Henry and Peter Jarjour in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. The town there has an annual event which they have modeled after the international “Diner en Blanc” (Dinner in White) which began in Paris, France, in 1988. The idea of a “fancy picnic” with musical entertainment and community interaction seemed to Howe and Tim to be a nice fit for Fairhaven, especially with the beautiful setting of Fairhaven Center. This is the third year for the event, to be held on the lawn of the Unitarian Memorial Church, and has proved to be increasingly popular. This year all the tables are expected to be filled as friends and neighbors dressed in white gather to celebrate the summer and all that makes Fairhaven such a special place to live.
