Carver, Mass. Town Travel Business Information

The community of Carver, Massachusetts is located halfway between Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island. Carver was named after John Carver, the first Governor of Plymouth County. Like many Massachusetts towns, Carver is a rural community that was originally based on an agricultural economy.

Carver has an abundance of cranberry bogs, limiting the town’s ability to really expand and grow. However, the residents don’t mind. In the 1940’s, their cranberry harvest was the largest in the world. It remains a major industry for Carver today. This small town enjoys weekends from Labor Day until Columbus Day by offering medieval fair days, complete with royalty and jousting. King Richard’s Renaissance Faire has been going strong for over 25 seasons and draws countless attendees each year.
