Cape Cod Looking Around Bourne

Trading with the Indians was one of the major activities of the Pilgrims. They built a trading post in Bourne at a place called “Aptucxet,” which is just off of Route 28.

In 1930 the Bourne Historical Society built a replica of the Old Trading Post and it looks like the original of 1627. The building is interesting with leaded panes, a steep roof, and has a Dutch look. Inside there are many local relics.

President Cleveland’s old Summer White House, “Grey Gables,” can be seen on the waterfront between Buzzards Bay and Monument Beach.
