    Join historian J. Duncan Berry on a walk through Captains’ Row—the stretch of Route 28 in West Harwich from the Herring River to the Dennis town line. This mile of Route 28 wears its deep historical and cultural significance in its wide array of buildings, each a fine example of a major style of American residential architecture from the 1740s to the 1940s. This walking tour discusses these amazing buildings, explaining the architectural styles and details, and noting the Harwich families who built them and lived in them. Captains’ Row is a multi-generational dialogue about the good life, played out in architecture, from the colonial days through the age of the great sea captains, and on to early motorized tourism.

    Duration: 50 minutes
