Named for the town’s rocky nature, Rockland was settled by European settlers who were led by Timothy Hatherly, as a northeastern region of neighboring Abington in 1673. It later separated and was incorporated as a town in 1874. Rockland is part of Plymouth county, and is part of the Boston metropolitan statistical area.
Dominated by rocky lands, Rockland has several ponds throughout the town, including Accord Pond and Studleys Pond, which is known to local residents as Reeds Pond.
