Eastham Real Estate
Eastham is rich in history – the region was known as “Nauset” after the Nauset Indians who were the original settlers there. First Encounter Beach commemorates the site of the first meeting between the Pilgrims and the Indians; unfortunately, the meeting did not end amicably with each group fleeing amid arrows and musket fire. Ultimately, a small group of Pilgrims dissatisfied with the land quality in Plymouth settled Eastham in 1644, coexisting peacefully with the Indians. Descendants of these original Pilgrims continue to live in Eastham today. Read more about Eastham real estate.
