Cape Cod Deed To Eastham

At a special ceremony in August (1951), a copy of the original deed from the Indians which was given to the Town in 1666 was presented by the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to the Town of Eastham.

The presentation took place at the time of the Eastham pageant, at the scene of what is known as the First Encounter, where the Pilgrims and the Indians first clashed. The deed is one of very considerable interest. It bears the names and marks of the Cape Indian chiefs at that time.
