The school named after Captain William Gould Vinal, a very well-known figure of the Norwell and South Shore area. He was a prolific author, professor, naturalist, and conservationist who vastly innovated and contributed to the modernization of his field (one of the 1st formal nature educators) and was very active and involved in many projects. Allegedly, he had a cabin built in the middle of nature to retreat and write about plants, animals, and life outdoors; we are fortunate enough to carry some of his legacy, since the cabin still survives intact, in great shape and is located on the lot where our Norwell property is, at 731 R Grove St, Norwell, MA!

The beautiful original oak floors, the massive stone fireplace, the well, the traditional stone foundation and all the fascinating features are still in great condition and ready to be used!
