Yarmouth Information

 

yarYarmouth, incorporated in 1639, is located in the mid-Cape area, about 65 miles southwest of Provincetown and 23 miles east of the Cape Cod Canal. It is one of those Cape towns that extends from Cape Cod Bay on the north, across the peninsula south to Nantucket Sound. The most striking physical features of the town are the result of glaciation; the low round hills on the north side of town were created by the leading edge of the glacier as it pushed the land before it. The flat sandy terrain of the southern part of town is the apron of material that was washed out from the glacial ice. Yarmouth is a member of the Dennis-Yarmouth Regional School District and has 5 public schools located in the town. At a college level, the Cape Cod Community College offers enrollment in full-time two year programs as well as in its continuing education program. There are 3 libraries within the town. Keeping pace with the growth on Cape Cod is the growth of professional and community music, art, dance and theater groups, some of them located in Yarmouth. The community enjoys a variety of recreational programs as well as the town’s 15 public saltwater beaches, 5 freshwater beaches and 2 municipal golf courses.
