Located by the “elbow” of the Cape on Nantucket Sound, Harwich was originally settled in 1670 as part of Yarmouth. Rich in small-town New England charm, Harwich is popular among visitors and locals alike. The first commercial cranberry operation opened in Harwich in 1846, and the town is widely considered to be the birthplace of the industry on Cape Cod. Accordingly, the Harwich Cranberry Festival has been held every September since 1976. Popular town destinations include the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, the Harwich Antique Center, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, and the Harwich Junior Theatre. There are plenty of art galleries, shops, conservation areas, and beaches to keep residents busy all year long. And easy access to neighboring Chatham and Dennis makes the best of the Cape easy to explore.
While the town is a popular vacation spot, many year-round residents call Harwich home. From expansive seaside spreads to cozy Capes tucked away on quiet streets, many Harwich homesteads are steeped in history.
