Fairhaven is a lovely seaside community on the shore of Buzzards Bay, directly across the harbor from New Bedford. The town’s most remarkable features are the magnificent European-style public buildings built between 1885 and 1906 by Standard Oil Company millionaire Henry Huttleston Rogers, a native of the town who was a businessman and philanthropist.
Last Saturday we visited two of Rogers’ building: the Unitarian church (that Rogers dedicated to his late mother) and the Milicent public library (named after his daughter). If you come to New Bedford, make sure you also visit the downtown of Fairhaven, it’s lovely!
