Before anyone anywhere had ever heard the name Kennedy, Hyannis Port was established as a summer enclave for wealthy city dwellers. Like many towns on Cape Cod, once the railroad reached its location, so too did summer visitors. The Old Colony Railroad reached Hyannis in 1854. Its terminus was in Hyannis Port, as was the Nantucket ferry pier. In the 1870s, a group of Framingham investors purchased 1,000 acres of waterfront land in Hyannis Port and divided it into the grid of neat, postage-stamp parcels which still exist today. While the hotels that were once sprinkled throughout Hyannis Port have long since disappeared, many of the original homes still exist as does the Hyannisport Club, the golf club which was built in 1897.
While buildable land is becoming difficult to find all over Cape Cod, it is nonexistent in Hyannis Port. And while in some towns, it is possible to tear down an existing home to build a new one, it is virtually unheard of here. In fact, any outright changes to the physical appearance of a home’s exterior are problematic if not nearly impossible.
