Historical Tidbit:
Hobart Park was named after the Honorable Aaron Hobart.
 The Hon. Aaron Hobart was long one of East Bridgewater's leading citizens and substantial men, as was his father before him. Hon. Aaron Hobart was an eminent lawyer and efficient public servant, holding many positions of trust and responsibility, State senator, member of the United States Congress, etc. Hobart is a branch of the older Abington Hobart family, in which town the Hobarts were long prominent, and that is a branch of the still older Hingham family of the name.
   Hon. Aaron Hobart was born June 25, 1787, in what was afterward South Abington, Mass. He was fitted for college under the direction of Rev. Mr. Gurney, and at the early age of fourteen entered Brown University, from which institution he was graduated with the class of 1805. Having determined upon the legal profession as a life work he was prepared for it under the instruction of Hon. Nahum Mitchell, at East Bridgewater. After his admission to the bar in 1809, he passed a year abroad and returning to this country settled in the practice of his profession in about 1811 in the town of Hanover, Mass. He continued in the practice of the law in Hanover until 1824, then moved to East Bridgewater.
