picturesque seaside village. Chatham is located on the elbow of Cape Cod surrounded on three sides by water. Located halfway between Falmouth and Provincetown, it extends out to sea as the most easterly point in Massachusetts. Once a quiet farming and fishing community, Chatham has become a vibrant tourist destination. Rich in its maritime heritage, as well as a spirited New England town with a variety of small businesses, Chatham is a special place for year-round residents and visitors alike. We hope you will find our town as special as we do, and that you will return many times in the future to enjoy the beauty of this wonderful seaside village and all that it has to offer.

all about chatham PHOTO COURTESY OF BETSEY STRUM

One of Cape Cod’s oldest townships, Chatham was settled in 1656 by William and Anne Busby Nickerson. Incorporated in 1712, Chatham now has approximately 6,200 residents, according to the town census list. Originally a farming community, Chatham’s inhabitants found deep sea fishing to be a more lucrative occupation. Today, small boat deep sea fishing and shellfishing continue as important maritime industries. Chatham covers an area of approximately 17 square miles and is a happy combination of past and present. You will find Chatham to be an old-fashioned and picturesque New England seaside village, yet offering the best in modern facilities. Surrounded by water on three sides, Chatham benefits from Mother Nature’s “natural air conditioning” with cool summers, exquisite autumns, and mild winters. It is a comfortable place in which to live year-round or visit on vacation. Chatham operates under the town meeting form of government. The executive officers are a board of five part-time Selectmen and a Town Manager. The citizens of Chatham enjoy the special benefits of forward-looking zoning and planning, and both public and private conservation efforts.

weather SUMMER: Chatham lies at the “elbow”

of the Cape — at latitude 41.40 North and longitude 69.58 West. We are fortunate in having navigable waters on three sides, and, as a result, the average summer temperature is close to 70 degrees. We do have fogs but they’re rarely cold in summer. They are a boon to our gardens and usually yield to the sun by noon. Chatham fogs are just one more “conversation piece.”

AUTUMN & INDIAN SUMMER: This

is one of our finest seasons, growing more popular each year. The water is never bluer than in October, the air is bracing and dry, the scenery at its best with the sharpest colors of the year. Swimming in September or early October is not too cold for hardy folk. Indian Summer lingers through September, October, and well into November — a

www.chathaminfo.com

succession of glorious days and cool evenings. It’s an uncrowded time for tennis and golf, bicycling and hiking, beach exploring, sailing and fishing. It’s all part of Chatham’s Indian Summer. Come savor it with us!

WINTER: Our average winter temperature is about ten degrees warmer than on the mainland. We do get an occasional fall of snow which doesn’t last.

SPRING: March to May is our spring, when

we expect the thermometer to read in the upper thirties to low fifties most of the time. But when June comes, it “Busts Out All Over.” The waters of Pleasant Bay sparkle, and soon our famous roses and early flowers are in bloom everywhere.

Lighthouse Beach is swim at your own risk. The beach is monitored by Beach patrols who are there to assess the beach conditions, educate the public and prevent and respond to emergencies. The patrols are not there to guard you or your family in the water. The Lighthouse Beach patrols run from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm daily, starting in late June through Labor Day weekend. Red Flag System A flagpole at the top of the stairs leading to the beach and a second flagpole on the beach below the parking lot warns the public of dangerous conditions. The red flag shown here indicates that all swimming is prohibited in that area. Sharks Know your Risk: The only way to avoid a shark attack is to remain on shore. If you choose to enter the water: • Be aware that sharks hunt for seals in shallow water • Stay close to shore • Swim, paddle, kayak and surf in groups - don’t isolate yourself • Avoid areas where seals are present • Avoid areas where schools of fish are visible • Avoid murky or low visibility water • Limit splashing • Adhere to all signage and flag warnings

beach safety (continued)

North Beach Island/Inlet

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW NORTH BEACH ISLAND/INLET Swim at your own risk North Beach Island does not have lifeguards or beach patrol. The beach is swim at your own risk. Please be aware of rip tides, surf conditions and dangerous currents. No swimming at the Cut The new inlet that divides North (Nauset) Beach and North River Beach Island is closed to swimming. The currents are severe and treacherous. No flotation devices are allowed. There is absolutely no swimming in the cut by mandatory order of the Chatham Board of Health, the Harbormaster and the Park & Recreation Commission. Please pay attention to all signage.

www.chathaminfo.com

Boaters/Kyakers The surf conditions and currents in the inlets are extremely dangerous. Anyone without local knowledge and experience should avoid using the inlets at all times. Small craft, sailing vessels, kayaks and boards of any kind should not use the inlets. They can be easily swept out to the ocean and into dangerous surf. Chatham Harbor The currents are also very strong in Chatham Harbor. Ocean waves break in the harbor. Please pay attention to the tides and the shifting shoals. Schedule boating activities according to the tides. All vessels should heed the “Rough Bar’ warning (quick flashing yellow light) at the Chatham Lighthouse Coast Guard Station. Careful operation and navigation is required by all mariners and swimmers.

seal watching Harbor and gray seals are the most common species in Chatham, and can often be seen resting or hauled-out on rock piles, ledges, sand bars, and jetties exposed during low tide around the Chatham shoals from the North Beach breakthrough to South Beach and Monomoy. They’re also found resting on isolated beaches, in marshes, and on floating docks at all tide stages. The best time to see seals is within 2 hours of low tide on a sunny midday afternoon. Because seals cannot move well on land, during high tide they position themselves over submerged jetties. When the tide goes out they are left exposed, sitting on the jetty basking in the sun. If left undisturbed, they will stay on the rocks until the tide comes in again. If conditions are right, approximately 1,500 to 2,000 seals can be seen in the afternoons at Monomoy Island.

There are several local companies offering exciting seal tours along the beautiful Chatham Harbor waterways between North Beach, Chatham Light, and the Break.

baseball Last year marked the first time since 2001, that the Chatham Anglers played for the championship of The Cape Cod Basketball League, losing in the final round to the Wareham Gatemen. Manager Tom Holliday, who has coached at schools including Oklahoma State, North Carolina State, Auburn and Texas, thinks the 2019 team can return to the playoffs and win the big prize. Commenting on the 2018 season, Holliday said, “We’ve got a great squad with some of the best college players in the country.” The 2019 home opener of the 44-game, 10week season will be June 12th at the newly renovated Veterans Field. Sponsored by the 1,000-plus members of the Chatham Athletic Association, the CAA also supports a number of other youth and community activities.

CHATHAM’S OLD GRIST MILL The Mill is located near Chase Park, off Shattuck place, just a short walk from the downtown Main Street. Built by Colonel Benjamin Godfrey in 1797, the Mill remains almost exactly as it was when it was grinding corn for early Chatham residents. It is a prime example of a post-Revolutionary War commercial venture that served the community for more than one-hundred years. The Mill originally located overlooking Mill Pond was donated to the Town of Chatham by Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Crocker and moved to its present location in 1956. The Mill was restored for the 300th anniversary of the Town of Chatham in 2012. Today thousands of visitors visit the Mill during the summer season and walk in the steps of many who Chatham’s Old Grist Mill

used the Mill to supply them with corn meal and local gossip. Learn the variety of common phrases that started at the grist mills. The Mill will be open for History Weekend, June 21-23, 2019 and depending on weather conditions it will be grinding corn The Mill will open for the season July 5 until Friday, August 30, 2019. During that time the Mill will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week from 11 am–3 pm. Tours may be cancelled due to rain or severe weather conditions. The Mill will be open for the Festival of the Arts on August 16 through 18, 2019. The Mill will be open each day from 10am to 4pm and weather permitting will be grinding corn on Saturday, August 17, 2019. Throughout the season a variety of activities related to the Mill will be available for children and adults. www.chathamwindmill.com

CHATHAM FISH PIER

The Chatham Fish Pier, at the corner of Shore Road and Barcliff Avenue on Aunt Lydia’s Cove, is a constant source of interest to our summer visitors. The members of the fishing fleet make their run each suitable day to the fishing grounds from 3 to 100 miles off Chatham. Their catch consists of haddock, cod, flounder, lobster, pollack, dogfish and halibut. The fresh fish is placed in ice and transported in refrigerated trucks to the New York, Boston, New Bedford, and local markets, arriving less than 24 hours from the time it is taken from the ocean. The boats start returning to the pier shortly after noon, depending upon the tide. You may watch from the visitors’ balcony — be sure to bring your camera. Please observe local traffic and parking regulations while at the Fish Pier. Parking in upper lot for

visitors, lower lot by permit only. CCCHFA’s Pier Host Program: Learn about the maritime history of Chatham while having a fisherman show you the ropes at the Chatham Fish Pier. On select days, there will be a Pier Host available to tell visitors about an industry that is vital to the Cape’s past, present, and future. For a schedule, please visit www.ccchfa.org/programs/pier.htm

FISHERMAN’S MONUMENT

Several years ago, a community committee was formed to recognize the Chatham fishing industry in our town. It was decided to plan and erect a monument to this unique industry at the Chatham Fish Pier. From an international competition with about 100 entrants, the committee narrowed the selection to a final three, which were submitted to our fishing community for a final selection. The winning choice was designed by Sig Purwin — an artist and sculptor from Woods Hole —and dedicated in June 1992. The monument, entitled “The Provider,” features a strong hand pulling a fishing net

from the sea with many fish and shellfish indigenous to Chatham caught in the net. Visit the monument at the Chatham Fish Pier. It shows our pride in the people of our fishing industry — the proud, independent providers to the world of the Atlantic’s best seafood!

MAYO HOUSE

The Josiah Mayo House located at 540 Main Street is an excellent example of life on Main Street in the 1800s. It was built between 1818 and 1820 by Josiah Mayo, a Blacksmith by trade, who was Postmaster in Chatham for 40 years, Treasurer for 27 years and Selectman for two years. The house was occupied by members of the family until 1938. In 1974 it was purchased by Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank, and two years later it became the property of the Chatham Conservation Foundation. The CCF has restored the house. Many local residents and visitors tour the Mayo House each summer. The Mayo House will be open for the 2019 season on Wednesdays from 11am-3pm. 508-945-4084. www.chathamconservationfoundation.org/ josiah-mayo-house

ATWOOD HOUSE & MUSEUM

Owned and operated by the Chatham Historical Society, the Atwood House & Museum is located at 347 Stage Harbor Road. The original part of the museum is a house built in the 1750s by Sea Captain Joseph Atwood when he was a subject of George II of England. Because the Old House was occupied by the Atwood family until 1923, then acquired by the Historical Society in 1925, it has remained unchanged since the time it was built. The house therefore provides an excellent view into the way of life during the 18th and 19th centuries in New England. Over time, several wings were added to the

www.chathaminfo.com

original structure, with the latest expansion constructed between 2003 - 2005 to house more of the Historical Society collections. Today there are eleven spacious galleries featuring art, artifacts, costumes, textiles, and decorative arts portraying life on Cape Cod since the 17th century. New for 2019 is “Main Street Cape Cod,” a collaboration with other museums and historical societies on Cape Cod, displaying the rich history of main streets throughout the Cape Cod villages. Experience the many iconic places the Cape has shared through the decades and learn more about the historic museums on Cape Cod through our interactive display. Other new exhibits include “Chatham Digs,” displaying artifacts from an archeological dig at the Old Atwood House, along with an educational and interactive display allowing young visitors the opportunity to dig for treasures and prizes. In addition, the Atwood House & Museum will pay homage to the 100th anniversary of the historic NC-4 transatlantic flight that involved Chatham. Updated exhibits are on display in the Museum such as, “Double-Take: Historical & Current Panoramic Photographs of Chatham.” The exhibition features panoramic images of various locations and landscapes taken in the early 1900s and pairs them with photographs of the same places today. Visitors can view vistas like the iconic Twin Lights of the past next to the lighthouse today; Stage Harbor then and now, Mill Pond, and more. The exhibit is curated and sponsored by the former Atwood’s Archivist, Jean Young and her husband, photographer Andrew Young. Back by popular demand is “The Rescue of the Pendleton,” an exhibit highlighted by an inspiring mini documentary of the crew of the famed CG 36500 and its daring rescue on February 18, 1952.

Atwood House & Museum PHOTO COURTESY OF JOHN DIEGAN

One highlight of the museum is the Mural Barn that houses the nationally known portraits of 130 townspeople, painted by Alice Stallknecht between 1932-1945. Capturing the life and struggles of local residents during that period, a docent relates many fascinating stories about those portrayed. Another gallery is devoted to the history of fishing in the Chatham area and traces the evolution of the fishing industry on Cape Cod through objects, paintings, and photographs. Of special interest to many are displays on cranberry growing, salt works and other trades. On the grounds is the Nickerson North Beach Camp built in 1947, which was moved with all of the contents intact to save it from being washed into the sea as the beach eroded, and the working lighthouse lantern room, of one of Chatham’s last twin lights, with its original Fresnel lens. Hundreds of interesting antiques are exhibited in the 17 display rooms, providing something for all art lovers, history buffs, students and friends of Chatham and Cape Cod, no matter what their age. Although a complete visit requires two hours or more, those with less time can enjoy selected sections of the museum.

RAILROAD MUSEUM

It is located in the old Chatham Railroad Company station on Depot Road, and has parking space at the door. As listed in the National Register of Historical Places, this building is more than 100 years old and on its original site. It served the town for over fifty years from 1887 to 1937. In 1951, Mrs. Jacob Cox of Cleveland, Ohio, and Chatham purchased the structure and land as a gift to our town. It was restored as a “country depot” and a museum in 1960. From mid-June to mid-September it is open 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Its experienced group of volunteers from all over Cape Cod have welcomed more than 100,000 visitors since the first season. Starting with relics of the first commercial railroad in the U.S. in 1826, the exhibits grow each year and include hundreds of items of historical significance in the railroad field, plus models and objects that never fail to interest the visitors. The fully restored 100-year old caboose, the gift of the New York Central System, is open for all to enjoy the sounds of the rails. Young and old will enjoy this “Home on Wheels” of the railroad train crews. The diorama of the Chatham yards of about 1915 is a must-see exhibit. Museum can be opened for groups after season closing by special arrangements. Donations are accepted. Handicapped accessible. For more info: www.chathamrailroadmuseum.com

Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum PHOTO COURTESY OF CHRISTOPHER SEUFERT

MARCONI-RCA WIRELESS MUSEUM

The Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum is located at the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center, 847 Orleans Road (Route 28) across from Ryder’s Cove in North Chatham. In 1914, radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi built a wireless receiving station here paired with a transmitting station in Marion, Massachusetts to provide commercial radio service between the United States and Northern Europe. The station remained unused until after World War I, when the newly-formed Radio Corporation of America purchased it and placed it into service. The campus of 10 original buildings on 11.3 acres has been preserved by the Town of Chatham as the Marconi-RCA National Register Historic district. This year, the museum’s Wireless History gallery celebrates a critical turning point in the history of radio: 2019 marks the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), which became a pillar of 20th Century American industry. But in 1919, Chatham was one of only a few properties that constituted RCA on its first day of business. RCA’s development and growth would be rapid, and Chatham would become home to it’s flagship ship-to-shore station, WCC, advertised as the “worlds greatest coastal station”. A visit to the gallery reveals

62

the state of the radio industry in the unsettled years following World War I and the radical changes that would assure America’s future supremacy in radio communication. With informative panels, videos and interactive exhibits, visitors explore radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi’s life and legacy, the role of maritime radio in world events, ship-to-shore communication with the actual shipboard radio from the hospital ship SS Hope, and artifacts from WCC’s history. Visitors experience firsthand how a radio operator touching a Morse code key in Chatham could be heard by his counterparts aboard ships sailing the seven seas, and learn about the talented and skilled people who conceived, built and operated the station. In addition to relaying commercial and personal messages to ships, WCC communicated with pioneer aviators including Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart and Howard Hughes. Chatham Radio played a significant role in defeating the Germans during the World War II Battle of the Atlantic by intercepting Enigma-encrypted wireless messages between Germany’s headquarters and its ships at sea. “Station C” (its wartime U.S. Navy designation) passed these intercepts on to Washington, D.C., for decoding. As the control station for the East Coast direction-finding network, Station C directed the search for telltale radio signals that allowed enemy vessels to

P O I N T S O F I N T ER E S T

be located and tracked. Working electronic Enigma cipher machine simulators allow visitors to try their hand at encryption. The Wireless Today exhibits gallery chronicles the evolution of the technology behind the digital age, and evolution of the cell phone from bulky bag phones to today’s smart phones. Visitors discover the surprising number of tools and accessories that have been replaced by their smart phone, learn about locating Great White sharks via satellite, real-time tracking of ships at sea off Cape Cod, and how a personal drones works. Try the drone flight simulator! The museum’s third gallery is truly “open space” and open year-round. This is the Antenna Field Trail, a winding path through the flora and fauna of Cape Cod with interpretive signs describing the station’s antennas, and offering views of the preserved 1914 station campus. Some of the antennas are working scaled replicas of the originals, now actively used for communication with amateur radio operators around the world. The museum and Museum Shop are open most weekends during the Spring and Fall, daily Tuesday thru Sunday from mid-June to Columbus Day, and by appointment offseason. A weekly Summer Speaker Series provides interpretation and context for the museum’s exhibits, and the Center offers engaging science, technology, engineering & mathematics (STEM) classes for youth year-round. For days and hours of operation, classes, events and programs, please visit ChathamMarconi.org or call 508-945-8889.

THE CHATHAM LABYRINTH

The Chatham Labyrinth, located in Chase Park just beyond the Grist Mill, provides a meditative walk in a peaceful space in the center of town. The large stone labyrinth, 44 feet in diameter, is a replica of the beautiful

www.chathaminfo.com

12th century labyrinth inlaid on the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France. Made out of cut and sealed earth-toned pavers, the labyrinth is wheelchair accessible and a permanent legacy to the Town of Chatham. It is surrounded by green grass, scrub pines and native landscaping. Visitors are invited to walk the labyrinth or sit for a while in meditation or contemplation. The Chatham Labyrinth was given to the town by the Chatham Clergy Association in celebration and honor of its 300th Anniversary theme, “Find Your Way Here.” The labyrinth is thought to represent the life journey. The Labyrinth is open to the public during regular park hours. Guided Labyrinth Walks offered during July and August. If you are interested in knowing more about the labyrinth and any of The Chatham Labyrinth related events, please call Pilgrim’s Landing, 880 Main St., 508-945-1304 or visit www.pilgrimslandingcapecod.com www.chathamlabyrinth.com

Recognized as home to one of Cape Cod’s most prolific fishing fleets, Chatham is well known for its fresh fish and seafood. While many restaurants feature the “catch of the day” and other local favorites, there is no lack of other fare, including Italian, French, Continental, Asian and, of course, good old traditional American. Dining in most establishments is casual; and while shoes and shirts are always required, the need for a jacket and tie is rare. Most

restaurants do not accept reservations in season, but they generally do honor major credit cards. On page 82, you will find a list of dining establishments in the Chatham area. The information presented is designed to serve as a guide only; and while we have made every attempt to verify the facts, you should always check with the individual establishments regarding reservations and other details.

nature trails & parks The delightful physical characteristics of Chatham, such as the beaches, marsh and wetlands, and meadows, have long been known to our residents and summer visitors. Preservation of these resources is a benefit to our economy, our fisheries, wildlife and flora, a fact now recognized to a greater extent in the past few years by federal, state and local authorities. Chatham is fortunate in having, in addition to the town Conservation Commission, a privately operated organization in the Chatham Conservation Foundation, Inc., (104 Crowell Road, Chatham, MA 02633), dedicated to the preservation of these valued areas. The Foundation, chartered in 1962, is in the hands of eighteen trustees, including officers and executive committee, all without salary. Call

88

508-945-4084 for information, Tuesday and Thursday from 9 am – 1 pm. Many gifts of wetlands and marshlands have been donated to this organization and others obtained by purchase. To date, more than 588 acres have been put into conservation by the Foundation so they may be enjoyed by our residents and visitors. A highlight of the Foundation’s work in the field of education is its publication A Beachcomber’s Botany, with illustrations by Marcia Gaylord Norman and text by Loren C. Petry. It is a valuable guide to the interesting plant life in the marshes, along the shore, and the upland. You will find a copy of the publication in the public libraries throughout Cape Cod.

MONOMOY NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

Chatham is a mecca for bird enthusiasts. In autumn, Cape Cod is a veritable habitat for birds of numerous species. Its temperate climate attracts many birds through the winter when most have winged south. The summer months see the migration at its height. Chatham and Monomoy Island afford unexcelled opportunity to observe many species, both rare and common. Nearly every species recorded from New England has been seen at some time in this area. The Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge is a link in the chain of migratory waterfowl refuges along the Atlantic Flyway. Access is available by car, by a short boat trip from Chatham. Local boat charters are available. (See “Boats” p.91) The refuge provides nesting, feeding, and resting grounds for a known 285 species. This is one of the most famous and productive ornithological points on the Atlantic seaboard. Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge consists of North and South Monomoy Islands and a portion of Morris Island, Wikis Way. The nearly 3,000 acre refuge stretches approx. ten miles southward into the waters of Nantucket Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Ninety-four percent of Monomoy’s acreage was designated a Wilderness Area in 1970, and is managed under the guidelines of the Wilderness Act of 1964. It is the only Wilderness area in southern New England. To reach the headquarters on Morris Island, take Route 6 east to Route 137 south to Route 28. A left turn takes you through downtown Chatham (about 3

miles). Turn right at the stop sign to the Chatham Lighthouse and Coast Guard Station. Take the first left after the lighthouse, then the first right. Follow Morris Island Road to signs for the refuge on the left. Open Mon – Fri 8 am – 4 pm. For further information, call 508-945-0594. www.fws.gov/refuge/Monomoy Massachusetts Audubon Society’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary conducts guided natural history tours of Monomoy throughout the year.
