Brewster sits the shores of Cape Cod Bay at the “elbow” of the Cape. Named after Elder William Brewster, the first religious leader of the Pilgrims in Plymouth, Brewster was established as the wealthier counterpart of neighboring Harwich. In the late 17th century, the town built the Stony Brook Grist Mill, the first water-powered mill of its kind in the country. Brewster was home to many wealthy sea captains, several of whose homes are now historic inns, such as the Crosby Mansion and the Captain Freeman Inn. The Museum of Natural History and Nickerson State Park are part of Brewster’s seaside beauty, along with Drummer Boy Park, Breakwater Beach, Paine’s Creek, and Crosby Landing. Galleries, antique shops, and charming homes dot Route 6A.
With so much to see and do, Brewster is a popular tourist destination, but plenty of year-rounders call Brewster home and summer residents make their home in this cozy getaway.
