Bourne Real Estate

Bourne is a quiet town located on the Upper Cape, characterized by the Cape Cod Canal which splits the town in two across the northern end. Home to the Bourne and Sagamore Bridges, Bourne experiences less of the summer rush than other areas of the Cape.   The community bordered by Sandwich to the east, Falmouth to the south, Plymouth to the north and Marion and Wareham to the west.

Bourne is termed the Cape’s “first town,” as it is typically the first town residents and visitors pass through when entering Cape Cod.  The town is credited as the site of the nation’s oldest store, the Aptucxet Trading Post, founded by the Pilgrims in 1627. The location later evolved to form the Cape Cod Canal, architected to save ships the time and danger of sailing around the hazardous eastern shores of the Cape.  Read more about Bourne real estate.

The History of the Cape Cod Canal

While visitors to Cape Cod may take the Cape Cod Canal for granted these days, the man-made channel has served an important role in the region for generations. Thousands of people cross over one of the canal’s three bridges every year, likely not even thinking about its origins. Officially connecting up Cape Cod Bay to Buzzards Bay, the canal, for some, was a long time coming. While officially dating back to the early 1900s, the Cape Cod Canal was actually planned out hundreds of year... Read More
