Houghs Neck

Quincy City, Norfolk County, MA

Hough's Neck is a northeastern peninsular community named for Atherton Hough, who was granted the land in 1636 for use as a farm and orchard. He was a farmer and also kept an orchard.

The Hough's Neck community is approximately one mile square, and it is comprised of 4 distinct sub-neighborhoods: Great Hill, Rock Island Cove, Rock Island Head, and The Willows.

The first homes were built about the late 1800s, attracted by the shoreline, beaches, boating and natural beauty. This was once a summer resort home to summer cottages, summer mansions and summer hotels, of which few survived. Today Hough's Neck neighborhoods are settled, residential communities.
