The town of Somerset is located in Bristol County, east of New York and close to the Rhode Island border. Somerset was first settled in 1677, and was officially incorporated in 1790. Historically, it was an important shipping point and is now known chiefly for power generation. The town is connected to nearby Fall River by the Brightman Street Bridge in the north and the newer Veterans Memorial Bridge.

Over on the other side of town is Taunton River, where you can walk along Riverside Ave and check out the old ferry landing.
