Cape Cod Museums and Historic Places

Yarmouth Port is one of the oldest settlements in New England, and its historic sites and museums are only a few minutes walk from the Inn at Cape Cod, which is itself listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In the 19th Century, the inn was known as the Sears Hotel, and was a stagecoach stop for travelers from Boston, Provincetown and Chatham.We invite you to experience the same warm hospitality that has been a tradition here for years, and explore other historic locations during your Cape Cod travel.
