Situated in the heart of Buzzards Bay, Wareham boasts miles of Massachusetts coastline and serves as the gateway to Cape Cod and the Cape Cod Canal.
History of Wareham
Because of its geography, Wareham’s early industry revolved around shipbuilding and related industries and in modern times its economic base has shifted to service industries and cranberry growing — which remains an important economic factor with cranberry growers controlling over 30% of Wareham’s 29,940 acres of land. Important reminders of Wareham’s industrial and maritime roots survive, including the Tremont Nail Factory and the Cape Cod Ship Building Company; and neighborhoods throughout Wareham with an affordable housing stock reflect its layered history — from Onset Village’s Victorian-era cottages, to the high-style residences in Wareham Center, and from the rural 18th and 19th-century streetscapes of Great Neck and County Roads to the many 20th century planned seasonal communities.
Modern-day conveniences include the Wareham Crossing shops where you can pretty much shop for anything and a picture-perfect downtown with a wonderful selection of restaurants and small businesses. Wareham’s proximity to I-195 and I-495 allows for easy access to both Providence and Boston or U.S. Route 6 to bring you right to Cape Cod.
