Norfolk County Information

Norfolk County, Massachusetts was incorporated in 1793 with Dedham as its county seat. It is the only county in the United States that was the birthplace to four United States Presidents—John Adams, John Quincy Adams, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and George H.W. Bush.

This is a very urban, metropolitan area, so it's a shopper's delight. Stores of every size, price-point, and variety are available in every city in the county—whether you're looking for quaint vintage shops and out-of-the-way antique stores or trendy boutiques and major retailers like Macy's or Lord & Taylor, you won't have to go far to find what you're after. Museums are another major feature of a county that is steeped in historic landmarks and memorabilia from the American Revolution and the early days of this nation.

While the county is very urban, it does have its fair share of beautiful parks for locals and visitors alike. Blue Hills Reservation and Quincy Quarries Reservation both offer hiking, bike paths, rock climbing and mountaineering. During the winter months, the parks offer a cross-section of winter sports as well, such as sledding and skiing.

If you're looking for a night on the town, you'll find hundreds of dance clubs, brew pubs, and other hot spots from which to choose. If you're interested in an intimate dinner in a four-star restaurant, the county has hundreds of options from traditional steakhouses, to an endless variety of ethnic offerings. Because it's close to Boston, Norfolk County is a natural gathering place for artists and musicians. The annual Norfolk Arts Forum Conference brings together the movers and shakers of the arts community in an effort to plan cultural events that will keep the county competitive and current. Come see for yourself what Norfolk County has to offer.
