Snipatuit Pond Estates in Rochester MA 

Rochester, named after Rochester England, was first settled back in 1679. Originally part of the towns of Marion and Mattapoisett, residents here worked in the early ship building and whaling trade that thrived out of Mattapoisett Harbor. In the 1850's the towns separated but Rochester still retained rights for its residents to the salt water beach known as Silvershell Beach in Marion.

Rochester is a small "bedroom" community of just over 5000 residents. Its "town center" its right out of a Currier and Ives painting that's only clue to the modern world is the plaza across the street which houses a store, post office, upscale restaurant and book store. There's an old saying in Rochester that "there's no street corners for the kids to hang out on"   and there really isn't.
