Located on the outer end of Cape Cod, the town of Wellfleet offers an abundance of quaint rural sea-side character and charm. Bounded on the east by the ocean and the west by Cape Cod Bay, 61% of the land area of Wellfleet is in the Cape Cod national Seashore Park. During the summer, tourists and residents enjoy the town's miles of ocean and bay-side beaches; numerous beautiful, clear, spring-fed, ponds; many fine art galleries, shops and restaurants; and the magnificent Wellfleet Harbor offering a constantly changing panorama of sail boats, motor yachts, sport fishing boats and trawlers. An extremely diverse community with an intriguing history of an extraordinary nautical atmosphere, the friendly charm of the Central Village provides the pedestrian with a vast array of browsing, dining, picture-taking and sight-seeing opportunities within a relatively short walk. The town is home of the Cape Cod National Seashore Headquarters as well as the 1,000 acre Massachusetts Audubon society Wildlife Sanctuary. Some of Cape Cod's finest ocean surf-casting, fresh water pond and Cape Cod Bay boat fishing possibilities are found in Wellfleet, and the town is well-known for its plentiful supply of shellfish, including the famous "Wellfleet Oyster".

About the Town of Wellfleet

Find out more about town specific info such as weather and demographics at Wellfleet Town Info.
Wellfleet was settled in the 1650's and it's economy was driven by fishing and the oyster beds. It was home to 30 whaling ships at the time of the American Revolution. With the decline of whaling, the ships were gone by 1900. It was around this time that Guglielmo Marconi built his first wireless station on a bluff in Wellfleet, from which he sent the first radio telegraph transmission from America to England. In 1717 the pirate ship Whdah sank off shore with over 4 tons of gold and silver and 143 of its 145 men. The wreck was found in 1984 and its treasures can be viewed at the Whydah Pirate Museum. Construction of the Chequesset Inn in the late 19th century contributed to the development of a tourist economy in Wellfleet. The town has the second greatest concentration of art galleries on Cape Cod, right after Provincetown.
