Brewster is an historic sea captains’ town located on the bay side of Cape Cod. Established in 1803, the town encompasses approximately 23 square miles, including over 325 acres of beach and marshlands, with 24 ponds larger than 10 acres in size. Brewster has taken action to protect its historic character by establishing sign codes and site plan review by-laws, and is in the process of updating its comprehensive plan. In 1985, the town took steps to protect its open space and water quality by purchasing close to 700 acres of land. Currently, over one-third of Brewster’s land has been retained for conservation, open space, recreation and watershed protection. Consequently, Brewster boasts award-winning drinking water and 2 nationally acclaimed 18-hole golf courses among other recreation sites. Nickerson State Park contains 400 acres of trails for biking and hiking, camping areas, and freshwater ponds for swimming, fishing and boating. Brewster has over 15 bed and breakfast inns and over 30 art galleries, craft shops and antique shops, most of which are along historic Route 6A, the old “King’s Highway.” Brewster’s current year-round population of about 8,400 grows to about 20,000 in the summer season as visitors come to sample the diversions of the town.
