After the construction of the Scituate Reservoir, the village of North Scituate, located toward its northern end, became the principal surviving town and new town seat. Although there is nothing outstanding about Main Street, the white clapboarded ensemble, with some nice country examples of the Federal and Greek Revival styles, is sprucely attractive. Conversions of many of these buildings to antique and gift shops modestly capitalize on the image of a typical nineteenth-century New England rural town.
