Often cloaked in morning fog, Chatham, Massachusetts forms the ragged elbow of Cape Cod.
Encompassing a mere 16 square miles of dry ground, Chatham is a decidedly maritime place of pristine beaches, wild barrier islands, tidal shoals, fleeting sandbars, circular coves and miles of saltwater inlets.
Incorporated in 1712, Chatham remains remarkable old-fashioned, despite a well-deserved reputation for shopping. Chichi boutiques reside in quaint storefronts along its winding Main Street lined with historic inns, white-steepled churches, varied eateries and art galleries. A visit to the busy commercial fishing pier reveals the thriving fishing village that exists beneath Chatham’s stylish façade.
Chatham has a beauty that is unsurpassed. Surrounded on three sides by water, it has expansive and magnificent beaches, abundant marine wildlife, and a community committed to preserving these natural resources for future generations.
The Town of Chatham is investing in its future with a wastewater construction project that addresses nitrogen issues that degrade the water quality of the harbor and estuaries along Chatham shores. This project will help to maintain the excellent water quality of the drinking water supply wells and preserve the valuable fresh water pond resources in the town.
