The Town was officially incorporated on June 4, 1686, and was renamed for Rochester, England from which early settlers to the Town came. The Town originally thrived with the early shipbuilding and whaling trade in Mattapoisett Harbor. Since that time, Rochester has become mostly rural-residential, with some farms located in Town.
