About Osterville, MA – Cape Cod
The attractive seaside village of Osterville, rich in history and cultural heritage, was founded in 1648 as “Cotacheset”. It was primarily a seafaring village, the home of sea captains, shipbuilders, saltworkers, cranberry growers and oyster men. The name of Osterville did not come into use until 1815.
Osterville is one of seven villages within the town of Barnstable, Massachusetts, United States. The village of Osterville is located on the south side of Barnstable on Nantucket Sound. Osterville is a residential community that includes marshes, bays, ponds, a small lake, beaches, and a small business district. Notably, the village is home to the Crosby Yacht Yard. The Crosbys are America’s oldest, currently active, wooden boat-building family. The Crosby Yacht Yard, which is known worldwide for building superior catboats, Wianno Juniors, and Wianno Seniors. Pres. John F. Kennedy’s Wianno Senior, seen in photographs across the globe while he was in office, was crafted and stored here. It all began in 1850 when C. Worthington and Horace S. Crosby went into the boatbuilding business
Rich in History
Osterville was originally named Cotacheset, based on the Native American name for the area. Over time it became a center for “oystering” (harvesting wild oysters) and was renamed Oysterville. Later a map misspelled the name as Osterville and the village became so!
Around the mid 1800s, word got out to the rest of the world that Osterville was a cool and beautiful spot to spend the summer. Wealthy families, mostly from Boston, began to visit, and several Osterville families who had large homes created guesthouses. Before long the families began building their own summer cottages and invited their friends to do the same. Within just a few years, there arose three exclusive summer neighborhoods, Wianno, Seapuit, and Oyster Harbors.
Evolution of a Town
Osterville’s popularity evolved from its location, the extensive coastline, charming convenient village center and attractive neighborhoods and resort areas. The village instilled both residents and visitors with a sense of peace and tranquility. As tourism expanded, picturesque streets and buildings were thoughtfully planned and developed. Noted architects and landscape architects plied their trade, first in the 1880’s at Wianno followed in 1920’s at Oyster Harbors.
Today Osterville’s 5.8 square miles preserves its association with the sea and its traditional summer resort quality. Osterville’s distinct areas include the more rural northern area along Bumps River Road, Tower Hill, East Bay, the village center, Seapuit, Osterville Harbor and the historic area of Wianno and the island communities of Little and Grand Island (Oyster Harbors). The village attributes include the 5 mile Nantucket Sound coastline and the 17 mile shoreline along the coastal bays and river estuaries. The shoreline encircles 1300 acres of protected waters and the coastline has 102 acres of protected barrier beaches. Thirteen inland ponds and lakes total 75 acres of surface water.
Osterville is now home to people of many histories and many lifestyles, and the village has been enriched by their collective heritages. Their stories are being preserved by the Osterville Historical Society, which was founded in 1931 by Dr. Fritz B. Talbot, a Boston pediatrician and a summer resident of the Wianno section. Since 1961, thanks to the generosity of Gladys Brooks Thayer of New York and Oyster Harbors, the society has been based in the stately Capt. Jonathan Parker House, which was built in 1824.
Welcome to Osterville!!
We have thirteen inland ponds and lakes totaling over 75 acres of surface water. Open land totaling 305 acres is held in the public interest to protect the natural environments in and around Osterville. You can enjoy two private golf courses that retain an additional 228 acres of open space.
Osterville’s year round population measured by Precinct 5, is 3,353. This includes children and unregistered voters. This number does not reflect the entire village of Osterville but does include some portion of the villages of Marstons Mills and Centerville. The Osterville Village Association has a 50 year history of active civic involvement. It represents the aspirations of its residents in that it strives to protect and preserve the village character, maintain a balance in growth and change, and hosts treasured community activities. Village Day and Christmas Open House are two of the most popular events.
