Marion, Massachusetts, USA

Marion, Plymouth, MA

What is now known as Marion, was once known as Sippican, named for the Indian tribe that lived here. Around 1678, some 29 families were sent to settle the area of what is now Marion, and was then Sippican. Thanks to the warm relations between Massasoit and the Plymouth leaders, relations between the Indians and the white settlers were friendly for many years. As the years passed, that tiny settlement expanded. New settlers began moving up the area rivers and those settlements became what are today Marion, Mattapoisett and Rochester center. However, the three villages remained part of Rochester until Marion and Mattapoisett broke away in the 1800s. sippicanhistoricalsociety.org
