September 15:  A Visit to Historic Hingham Square

We will take a private tour of three historic buildings Hingham Square. They’re all within walking distance, and weather and time permitting, we’ll see a number of others as we make our way through Hingham’s downtown.

The Old Ordinary

Since 1688, the Old Ordinary has been an inn, a tavern, a private home, and—since 1921—a house museum owned by the Hingham Historical Society.

Old Derby Academy

An imposing federal-style building, Old Derby Academy was a schoolhouse from 1818 to 1967. After restoration and construction of an addition, it reopened in the summer of 2017 as the Hingham Heritage Museum, offering both rotating and permanent exhibits and housing the Society’s archives.
