Chatham was discovered in 1606 by the French explorer Samuel de Champlain, but was not settled until 1656. Originally named “Monomoit” after the Indians who were the first inhabitants, Chatham was incorporated into a town in 1712 and is the easternmost land in the United States. The location was great for the thriving fishing industry, but vulnerable during the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, as it was a convenient harbor for the enemy to occupy.
In the late 1880’s the railroad made the trip to Chatham desirable and the area developed in favor of tourism. Downtown Chatham is charming, with a myriad of shops, galleries, restaurants and inns. Chatham has quite an off-season character, as well. From “Christmas by the Sea”, to the very popular Chatham “First Night” and the “Spring Fling” held in May, there is something here for everyone!
