Settled in the 1760’s the town is named after famous John Hancock, signer of the Declaration of Independence. Today it is home to about 2,100 residents and is a popular spot for summer vacationers or seasonal residents.

The town has no shortage of water with Taunton Bay, Skillings River, Egypt Bay and views of Frenchmen’s Bay! The town was once famous for its mills making everything from shoes to sleighs. Today the town is home to many creative types with The Pierre Monteux School for Conductors and Orcastra Musicians as well as a man who carves detailed art out of logs using a chainsaw.

One of the other attractions to Hancock is the now infamous ‘Pet Sematary’ house featured in the movie inspired by the Stephen King Novel. Below are some photos we found of Hancock on Instagram including the ‘Pet Sematary House’.

A newborn Harbor Seal shows off his "balancing a random leaf on the end of my nose" trick. Classic.
