Somerset is a waterfront community located just 20 miles from New Bedford and Providence, R.I. and 44 miles south of Boston. It is a residential suburb, which is directly accessible from Rte. I-95. It is bordered by the waters of Mount Hope Bay, Narragansett Bay and Taunton River and by the towns of Swansea, Dighton, Fall River, Berkley and Bristol, R.I. The town is connected to nearby Fall River by a bridge crossing the Taunton River.
In Colonial times, Somerset was inhabited by the Shawamet Indians. It was incorporated as a town in 1790 and became a major shipbuilding center and distribution point for foreign and domestic trade. It was the site of one of the first Quaker meetinghouses in New England. During the Depression Years, its population soared as residents from economically impoverished Fall River relocated to the suburb.
The town today has a growing, ethnically diverse population. Housing options include single and multi-family homes, condominiums and a small number of resort and vacation properties. The town has 15 miles of waterfront providing fishing, swimming and boating activities for residents and tourists. Somerset is home to five parks, including the popular Village Waterfront Park and the scenic Pierce Town Beach.
