Dighton is a small historic town located along the Taunton River in Southeastern Massachusetts. Now with a population of 6,800 and a land area of 22.4 square miles, the landscape of Dighton has changed dramatically since its birth. Dighton maintains its small town feel by offering a variety of community services and social events. Community organizations such as the Historical Society, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the historic Council Oak help Dighton honor its past while it grows towards the future.

Dighton’s public educational system is one of the best in the area. Consisting of Dighton Elementary School, Dighton Middle School, the Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School, and the Bristol County Agricultural School, this system brings learning to Dighton children from preschool through high school graduation. Each school has been built or modernized to meet the demands of today’s education needs. Social opportunities for both children and adults are plentiful with a wide selection of public, civic and religious organizations and town celebrations. Yearly festivals sponsored by the Veteran’s, the Lion’s Club, the Friends of the Dighton Public Library, and many other diverse groups, bring citizens together. Dighton’s Council on Aging provides older adults with services such as health clinics, educational seminars, entertainment programs, and daily meal preparation. Dighton’s Prime Time is an adult supportive respite facility located near town center.

A full roster of sports organizations provides Dighton youth with fun and learning, having both recreational and competition teams available. A local chapter of the Mom’s Club lends support and friendship to Dighton mothers, while Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts help develop citizenship. Area churches, synagogues, and meeting halls satisfy the needs of several denominations, providing assistance and support for Dighton families. Many of these buildings are historic and have been lovingly restored.

Situated within an hour’s drive to Boston, and just minutes from the city of Providence, Dighton is located minutes to Route 24 and Route 44 and is convenient to both professional, entertainment, and educational opportunities. Commuter rail service in nearby Lakeville further adds to the town’s accessibility.
