Norwell Streets and Neighborhoods

Norwell is a quaint suburban town south of Boston made up of country roads, cul-de-sacs, old and new subdivisions.

Norwell streets and neighborhoods all begin with Main Street (Route 123), which begins at the Hanover line at Jacobs Pond and third herring brook heading east straight through Norwell center to the Scituate line.

Norwell’s main business corridor (Route 53) also known as Washington Street runs from Assinippi corner in Hanover to Queen Anne’s corner in Hingham. This stretch of roadway features some nice restaurants, small shops and retailers, large grocery stores, medical and professional offices. Route 53 runs parallel with Route 3, which you can easily access from Route 228 near the Norwell/Rockland town line, which is exit 14 or you can access it at the Hanover exit 13 on-ramp.

Commuting to Cape Cod and downtown Boston

Without any traffic, you can shoot down Route 3 South to the Bourne and Sagamore Bridges to Cape Cod in about 30 minutes and North to downtown Boston in about the same time. Rush hour travel times to Boston can vary, but can be long during certain hours, days and times of the year. I would recommend avoiding peak travel times or use the commuter rail stations in Scituate, Cohasset, Hingham or Weymouth or take the Ferry boat out of the Hingham shipyard to travel stress-free to Boston.

Norwell has two commercial office/industrial parks, which makes up about 15% of the town’s tax basis

Norwell has two industrial and office parks, Accord Office Park on Accord Pond Drive and Assinippi Office Park on Longwater Drive. Norwell is home to some well known Corporations such as Clean Harbors, Zildjian Cymbals, and Sullivan Tire as well as the award winning Company Theatre, South Shore Medical Center and the South Shore Charter School.
