Cape Cod An Older Harwich

In John Hayward’s “New England Gazetteer,” published 1839, is found this account of Harwich:

In Barnstable Co., on the South side of Cape Cod, 14 miles E of Barnstable. Incorporated, 1694. Population, 1830, 2,464; 1837, 2,771. On Herring River, the outlet of Long Pond, are cotton and other mills. Some vessels are built here and some salt manufactured. The product of the cod and mackerel fishery the year ending April 1, 1837, was $33,000. Harwich is a pleasant town: the village makes a good appearance from the sea.
