Norwell Antique Colonial on 1.25 acres


Rich with history, the gracious homes that line Norwell’s winding, picturesque Main Street are a pleasing co-mingling of stately Colonials that were once the homes of prominent businessmen, modest parsonages for the clergy, and homes set on expansive tracts of land that hark back to the town’s long history of farming. The George A. Robbins House, more recently known as the Trojano House, which sits at the corner of Homestead Farm and Main Street, was built circa 1836 by George Robbins, who was a bank vice president as well as a ship joiner, a surveyor and a cabinet maker. Simple Georgian lines detail the white-clapboard home, which is set on 1.25 pastoral acres just short stroll from the village center.
