Lakeville is a town in Plymouth County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was 11,523 at the 2020 census. Native Americans inhabited southern Massachusetts for thousands of years prior to European colonization of the Americas. In 1675, the body of John Sassamon, advisor to Governor Josiah Winslow, was discovered beneath the ice of Assawompset Pond. The death of Sassamon and the subsequent trial and execution of the Wampanoag men convicted of his murder is broadly acknowledged as the trigger for King Philip's War. Lakeville was settled on a larger scale in 1717 as a western parish of Middleborough. It was incorporated as a separate town in 1853.91 men from Lakeville served in the American Civil War, 85 in the army and 6 in the navy. 3 churches have been built in the town, the first in 1725, the second in 1751 and the third one in 1835. Ocean Spray is headquartered in Lakeville. The town is roughly at the center of what is considered Southeastern Massachusetts, 20 miles (32 km) west of Plymouth, New Bedford, and 40 miles (64 km) east of Providence, Rhode Island. Its geography is dominated by its namesake lakes, which are referred to as "Lakeville" by locals. The indigenous name for Lakeville is Soewampset, which may have been the name of a former settlement on its banks. The first recorded non-native settlement of the town was in 1705 by a man named Peirce, 'whose descendants are very numerous'.
