How Dennis Got Its Name
Reverend Josiah Dennis settled on the Cape in what was to be known as Dennis. In 1865 Dennis was a thriving and flourishing town of 48 fishing vessels.
Nearly 1200 seamen came from this Cape town during the years that it held a leading place in the seafaring business. Some fast and famous clipper ships were built in Dennis by the Shivericks, the foremost shipbuilders on Cape Cod. Some of these fast ships made records to and from Calcutta and San Francisco.
