Assawomsett Lake

Assawompset Lake

Lakeville is a town of approximately 9000+ people and has a chain of beautiful lakes that occupy about 4000 acres of the town. The town’s name comes from this remarkable system of lakes, including Assawompset Pond, which at almost four square miles is the largest lake in Massachusetts. In addition, there are Great Quittacas Pond, Little Quittacas Pond, Pocksha Pond, and Long Pond. Long Pond is the source of the Acushnet River, and Assawompsett Pond is the source of the Nemasket River, which feeds the Taunton River.

Lakeville’s median household income and the medium house value are above the Massachusetts state average. Much of Lakeville is suburban and wooded, especially around the lakes. But, Ocean Spray is headquartered in Lakeville. Further, the commuter train to Boston has a terminus in Lakeville, making the trip into Bean Town an easy foray for those seeking to earn higher city wages. It has a proud history and many young families have moved there because of the school system (which it shares with Freetown to the south) and its proximity to the commuter train to Boston, plus short drives to Plymouth, New Bedford, and Middleborough.


Lakeville was settled in 1717 as a western parish of Middleborough. It was incorporated as a separate town in 1853. Middleborough borders Lakeville to the north and east. Rochester is to the southeast. Taunton and Berkley are to the west.
