Mashpee Town Guide: About Mashpee, Cape Cod

Mashpee, Massachusetts, the fastest growing municipality in Massachusetts, was originally established as a reserve for the last remaining descendants of the Massapee Tribe of Wampanoag – the Native Americans who became the first Cape Codders many centuries before the Pilgrims’ arrival.

Though now outnumbered by newcomers, Wampanoag culture still defines much of the town's character through an active Tribal Council and an annual Pow-Wow each July.

Despite rapid development, Mashpee has put aside thousands of acres of conservation land and offers exceptional freshwater fishing and recreation on four of the largest ponds of Cape Cod
