Chatham

Chatham

Free Summer Band Concerts on Friday at 7pm Margaret Noon Park, Main Street, Chatham and at 8pm Kate Gould Park, Main Street, Chatham

The summer band concert offers an evening of music that includes Broadway tunes, jazz, big band, classical and more from Town Bands and other invited performers. Most, if not all, of the concerts are free and open to the general public.

The stores on Main Street are a shopper’s delight.  After shopping, stop for a fabulous dinner at Pisces or the Del Mar.

Chatham Lighthouse

Almost 200 years ago, President Thomas Jefferson appointed the first keeper of a lard-burning lighthouse to safely guide ships past Chatham. The present day lighthouse boasts an electric beacon and overlooks a beautiful ocean beach. 

Chatham Walking Trails

The Chatham Conservation Foundation maintains three walking trails for public use on its property and provides a trail map of these areas. The Foundation also owns the Josiah Mayo House at 540 Main Street. Built between 1818 and 1820, the house is located in Chatham center and is open to the public every summer.

Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge

 

Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) was established in 1944 to provide habitat for migratory birds. Sand stretches for eight miles off the elbow of Cape Cod, forming the barrier islands of North and South Monomoy. In addition to the two islands, a 40-acre unit on Morris Island is also part of the refuge. This is where the headquarters and visitor center are located. 

One of Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge’s missions is to protect habitats critical to migratory shorebirds, spawning horseshoe crabs, and any other life that may reside on the refuge.

Chatham Fish Pier

The Chatham Fish Pier, at the corner of Shore Road and Barcliff Avenue on Aunt Lydia's Cove at 54 Barcliff Road Extension, 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. The boats start returning to the pier shortly after noon, depending upon the tide. You may watch from the visitor’s balcony – be sure to bring your camera. 

Biking in Chatham

Cape Cod has hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, including a paved, regularly maintained and clearly marked bike path. The Cape Cod Bike Trail starts in the neighboring village of Dennis and wanders 20 miles through charming towns and knotted pines before reaching Chatham. 

Once you've cycled through town, visit Monomoy Island in Chatham's southern end. The long stretch of sand that unites Chatham and Monomoy ("The Causeway" as locals call it) offers beautiful views of the Atlantic on one side and the Ryder's Cove marina on the other.

Caleb Nickerson House

The Caleb Nickerson House was built in 1772.  It was moved in 2003 to 1107 Orleans Road (Rte. 28) Chatham.  This pristine home of an American Revolutionary War veteran features three working fireplaces including a beehive oven and original iron cranes, period woodwork and random width wide pine floors and a Colonial kitchen vegetable and herb garden.

 Chatham Railroad Museum

The Chatham Railroad Museum is located in the beautifully restored 1887 railroad depot that served Chatham residents and visitors for nearly fifty years. Featuring an architectural style called Railroad Gothic, the building contains hundreds of exhibits and the New York Central model locomotives used at the 1939 New York World’s Fair..

Chatham’s Old Grist

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 will open for the season June 27th through September 2nd from Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:00am -3:00pm. Closed on July 4th.  Tours may be cancelled due to rain or severe weather conditions. Chatham Marconi Maritime Center

In 1914, Guglielmo Marconi built a high powered wireless station in Massachusetts. The receivers were here in Chatham and the transmitters were forty miles west, in Marion. The station was paired with a station in Norway to provide wireless communication between the two continents, using Morse code. That plan was interrupted by World War I. After the war, the station was bought by RCA and, except during World War II, stayed in operation as a wireless maritime station for over seventy years until 1997.

The Chatham Marconi Maritime Museum tells the story of Marconi, whose company built the station, and how the station's Morse code operators were able to communicate with ships across the world even a hundred years ago.
