Higgins Mobilehomes

About Us

In 1965 Elliott Higgins, his wife Viola and son Robert Sr., broke ground on our first manufactured home community located at 160 Washington Street, Plainville, Massachusetts, 02762.  After visiting several manufactured home communities through out Florida, Elliott saw how quality manufactured housing would fill the need for affordable, quality housing in the eastern Massachusetts area.

In 1969 we purchased the property at 45 Washington Street, Plainville, Massachusetts, 02762, which would become Sunset Acres.  Established as a premiere retirement community with a focus on high end, quality homes, large manicured lots and a sense of community friendliness that still exists today.


Consistency, quality and high community standards set our communities apart.  The residents in our communities are homeowners and have a sense of pride that only comes with ownership.  Three generations of quality management combined with resident pride contribute to high resale values of our homes.  Ongoing community improvements by the way of landscaping common areas to large scale infrastructure repairs demonstrate the need to look down the road and keep our communities as a place you would like to call home.
