Jacobs Meadow

Hingham Land Trust & Hingham Conservation Commission

Fifty acres of open fields and varied woodlands now extend from Main to the Fulling Mill Brook, with access behind the Wilder Memorial Building. Helen Burns, a major donor to the town, gave 30 acres to the Land Trust and 8 acres to the Conservation Commission. The northern ten acres were purchased by the Commission from abutters and the access strip opening to Main Street was provided by the generosity of the Goodlatte family. Two lots extending the park’s southeast corner have been given by Richard and Virginia Kurtzman (3.6 acres) and Robert and Carolyn Garvie (6.75 acres).
