Padanaram Village on Apponagansett Bay in South Dartmouth is an idyllic area with green open spaces, oceanfront vistas, working farms, and stately Colonial and modern homes. It is an affluent section of the large town of Dartmouth, which borders Fall River, New Bedford, Freetown, Westport and the Atlantic Ocean.
The history of South Dartmouth says that a group of Plymouth Colonists in 1652 purchased a 61-mile peninsula on Apponagansett Bay from the Wampanoag tribe, led by Chief Massasoit. The village was originally given the Native American name of Ponagansett, but was later renamed Padanaram to honor a nineteenth century shipbuilder and philanthropist who lived in the area. The community thrived as a major shipbuilding center and minor whaling port for several centuries.
The picturesque village of Padanaram reflects the town’s agricultural roots with lush green farmlands sloping to the sea. Its natural beauty attracted many affluent citizens from New Bedford to the area in the early years, and it continues to be an upscale summer resort. The community today is filled with tourist and year-round amenities, including beautiful beaches, the New Bedford Yacht Club, the Lloyd Center for Environmental Studies and many fine restaurants and shops lining the cobblestone streets of the village. Each year, residents and visitors celebrate the holidays with a Colonial-themed Christmas festival with roasting chestnuts and strolling carolers in the Padanaram business district.
Despite its location within one of the largest towns in Massachusetts, Padanaram retains much of its close-knit community feel and remains a peaceful seaside haven.
