In 1923, a group of citizens founded the Chatham Historical Society to preserve the history of Chatham; one of Cape Cod's earliest fishing villages. In fact, Samuel Champlain made landfall in Chatham in 1606! There is a stone marker commemorating this event near Stage Harbor. The Society's headquarters is the Atwood House& Museum complex - featuring the historic home owned by Captain Joseph Atwood which was built in 1752. The institution also features a comprehensive archives & research facility, A China trade gallery, A Chatham fishing gallery, The Stallknecht Mural Barn, The Joseph C. Lincoln gallery, and much more.

  • Lovely day learning about the history of Chatham. Beautiful museum. Fine docents, too. Thank you all!
  • Very interesting and informative. Best source of Cape Cod I've found. Particularly helpful staff. Ask a question and they'll find an answer if they don't know. Excellent collection of artifacts.
