The town of Hanson was originally settled in 1632 as the western parish of Pembroke, and was later officially incorporated in 1820. Hanson was named after the Maryland newspaper publisher of the Federal Republican Newspaper and U.S. Senator Alexander Contee Hanson, who was known as a champion of free speech and freedom of the press.
Hanson’s early industry revolved mostly around farming, bog iron, and quarrying, which allowed mills to be built along the rivers during the nineteenth century. Cranberry farming became quite popular due to the opening of the famous company Ocean Spray, which was first started by several bogs, and remained headquartered in Hanson before moving to Plymouth in the 1970s.
Hanson is mostly dominated by lakes, brooks, rivers, ponds, and swamps, which include Oldham Pond, Maquan Pond, Wampatuck Pond, Indian Head Pond, Indian Head Brook, Poor Meadow Brook, White Oak Brook, Little Cedar Swamp, and the Shumatuscacant River.
