  • Welcome The Osterville Village Library is committedWELCOME to spreading knowledge and strengthening community through programs and outreach beyond the four walls of our beautiful new facility. We think this new publication is a great way to inform visitors and residents about what the village has to offer, support our non-profit colleagues and the business community and, at the same time, raise money to help support the library. It fills an information gap and we’re excited to provide this new annual resource. The net proceeds from the advertising sales of this guide will benefit the Osterville Village Library. Our first edition includes several articles we hope you’ll find informative and entertaining, and a comprehensive, month-by-month calendar of events from May 2013 through April 2014. A digital version of the calendar is also available on line at www.experienceosterville.com and www.ostervillevillagelibrary.org. Be sure to check on line for any last-minute additions to the village’s activities and events. And follow Osterville Village on Facebook and the village and library on Twitter (@Osterville and @ostervillelib)!

  • Golfing in Osterville Private clubs; public opportunitiesGOLFING The name of golf course architect Donald Ross is famous all over the world. Ross designed many championship courses during the period 1900 to 1948 including the spectacular Pinehurst #2 in North Carolina, the site of many major tournaments. The village of Osterville has not one, but two Donald Ross Golf courses. Winding through the village is the Wianno Golf Course. Originally built as a nine-hole links course in 1916, the club hired Mr. Ross in 1919 to redesign the old nine and design a second nine holes on recently purchased land west of Parker Road. The resulting eighteen hole course covers 6,022 yards with a par of 70. The par five fourth hole takes the players to the very edge of North Bay with its great views. The tenth hole, a 418 yard par four, has been described as one of the outstanding par four holes in New England. 37th annual osterville village library golf tournament Wianno Club Golf Course May 31, 2013 Sponsor: Centinel Financial Group, LLC Lunch sponsor: Jackson National Proceeds to benefit the Osterville Village Library Entry Fee: $200 per player (includes lunch, cart, golf, prizes, dinner and music) limited field 6

Young boys from the city would spend summersthere earning money and learning the game.Donald Ross returned to Osterville in 1927 to design and build theOyster Harbors Golf Course on the gated community of OysterHarbors on Great Island. Oyster Harbors was described by Mr. Rossas one of his favorite layouts. Playing 6,800 yards to par 72, thecourse includes many fairway bunkers and offers scenic water views.Larry Gavrich, who writes a blog calledGolf Community Reviews, reminiscedabout a round at Oyster Harbors: “As weteed off in balmy weather, I was temptedto ask my golfing partner, ‘Is this heaven?’‘Nah,’ he most likely would have responded,‘it’s just Oyster Harbors.’” Gavrich went onto comment, “The golf course transports youback to the early part of the 20th Centurywhen golf architects didn’t plow up the landinto unnatural moguls or force fit the coursebetween a group of homes. Mother Naturedid much of the work for Donald Ross atOyster Harbors….”Although both golf courses are private,there are public opportunities to play.The Osterville Village Library is hostingits 37th Annual Golf Tournament onMay 31, 2013 at the Wianno Club GolfCourse.

  • It’s a Grand Old FlagGRAND OLD FLAG Early in the history of Osterville, the area at the intersection of Parker Road, Bay Street, and Wianno Avenue housed the village hay scales where produce in this farming community was weighed. Eventually the island at the center of these streets was turned into a World War I memorial on which the names of local service men and women were etched in bronze to acknowledge and honor their service. Standing guard over the memorial, waving high and wide from a 70-foot flag pole, Old Glory signals entry into the village. It is a guide post welcoming visitors, and signaling “home sweet home” for residents. It is also a tribute honoring those who served and s acrificed for their community. And for many years, tending to the flagpole was the particular honor and responsibility of long- time village resident Townsend “Townie” Hornor. Every single day for years he raised and lowered that flag. When it became frayed and worn by exposure to harsh summer sun and frigid winter wind, he paid to replace the flag himself. And when Townie died in 2005, Cape Cod native Russ Jacobson took over these responsibilities with the help of his wife Susan, raising and lowering the flag, making sure the pole itself was working well, even planting and tending the flowers that adorn the memorial.

For him, it’s simple. “I do it because I love Osterville,” he says. – Karyn Kuhn A center for all ages and levels of fitness Cardio & Strength Equipment | Free Weights Spin | Personal & Group Training Fit Training (Denise White) | M.E.C.A.

  • Hit the Road Osterville on foot or bikeHIT THE ROAD There’s no better way to get to know Osterville than to hit the road on foot or bike. And, for those who like to wander off road, we’ve got some great options as well. These great routes will reward you with great views along the way. Hit the pavement All of the routes in this section start at the corner of Wianno Avenue and West Bay Road (in front of the Osterville Library, looking at the post office across the street). The Big Loop Distance: 5.5 miles Go right and head down Wianno Avenue to the end, where you can pause for a great view of the ocean. Turn right onto Sea View Avenue. You’ll see the stately Wianno Club on your left. A successful summer hotel called The Cotocheset House was built in 1873 and stood on this site. The foundation of the hotel was made of stone taken from Daniel Webster’s Boston mansion which had been destroyed by fire in 1872. The Cotocheset House itself burned to the ground as well in 1887, but was immediately rebuilt. The “new” Cotocheset House, the present Wianno Clubhouse, opened in July of 1888. Continue to the end of Sea View Avenue and enjoy the views of Sampsons Island and Oyster Harbors across the water. To return, head back down Sea View and take a left onto Eel River Road. At the end, take a right on West Bay to get back to the village, or take a short detour to the left to visit Crosby Yacht Yard, where boat building and repair has taken place since the early 1800s. Train for the Road Race Distance: 3.1 miles (5k) Prepare for the 34th annual Cape Cod 5K Championship (July 20th, 8 am). Start in front of the old Elementary School at West Bay Road, north to Wianno Ave, a right onto Wianno Ave; right onto Seaview Ave. As you turn right onto Parker Road, say good bye to the ocean views, but the beauty of the Wianno Golf Course awaits you. Mile 3 is at the intersection of Parker Road and West Bay Road; take a right onto West Bay Road for the last 1/10 th of a mile and finish right back where you started. This course is measured and certified by the USATF. CONT’D14
  • Oyster Harbors Windmill & Back Distance: 3.1 miles Take a right onto West Bay Road and stay straightHIT THE ROAD when you reach Parker Road. The Osterville Historical Society Museum will be on your left. The Museum’s lovely grounds include an 18th century herbal garden and a 19th century ornamental garden, and are also home to Osterville’s Farmers Market in the summer months. Take a left onto Bridge Street. Stop and enjoy the views on both sides of the bridge (beware that it’s a draw bridge); continue until you reach the windmill, the entry to Oyster Harbors, a private residential enclave. Retrace your route to return to the village. East Bay Route Distance: 2.7 miles Go right onto Wianno Avenue. Take a left onto East Bay Road. You’ll see Dowses Beach on your right. Take a detour in to either walk the beach or bike through the parking lot to the end. Stop to enjoy the view from the observation deck and check out who’s catching what on the jetty. Go back out to East Bay Road and take a right. At the end of East Bay, take a left on to Main Street. Armstrong- Kelley Park is on your right. Over its 80+ years, Armstrong-Kelley has been building a greenspace that includes 30 rare and unusual trees, as well as trails, walkways, and specialty gardens. To finish up your walk, continue on Main Street and take a left onto West Bay Road. COMFORTABLE. SAFE. CARING. PRECISE. GENTLE. Talida M.

  • HEAD OFF-ROAD Two great woodland areas to escape the beach crowds. One warning for anyone heading off road to hike: stay on trails to avoid ticks and HIT THE ROADpoison ivy. It’s best to wear long pants tucked into socks, and checkyourself for ticks after your hike. Skunknett River Wildlife SanctuaryLocated just off Bumps River Road, this sanctuary has more than 100 acresof woodlands. Walk along the sanctuary’s tree-covered trails to a smallwoodland pond where you may see great blue herons, black-crownednight-herons, and ospreys. In the spring, listen for chorusing frogs in thevernal pools. For directions and more information: 508.362.7475/508.362.7475or longpasture@massaudubon.org. Joshua’s PondLocated just off Tower Hill Road. As you drive into the parking lot, the trailis to the right of the pond. Be careful not to turn an ankle on protruding treeroots along the way. The path winds along the shore of Joshua’s Pond. About ¾of a mile into the loop there’s a fork. Keep to the left, continue to follow the pathand about another ½ mile along you’ll find yourself with Joshua’s Pond on oneside and Micah’s Pond on the other. Don’t be surprised to see red tail hawks, oreven a stray deer. The path continues to wind around Micah’s Pond and bringsyou back onto Pond Street. Or, retrace your steps to the Tower Hill Parking lot. – Claudia MahoneyArmstrong-Kelly Park is a beautiful oasis for strolling the boardwalk, hiking the shorttrails, or just sitting and enjoying the view. www.ostervillevillagelibrary.org 17

  • Fishing in and aroundOsterville FISHING Cape Cod is certainly considered a world-class fishing destination, and Osterville in particular offers anglers an incredible variety of landscapes. From the vast system of estuaries and inshore bays to open ocean beaches, anglers can catch trophy fish right from the shore, harbor jetties, a boat, a kayak and even a paddleboard. Here are some specific areas to try next time you decide to go fishing: Dowses Beach: In recent years, a nice handicap accessible pier was built at the east end of the parking lot at Dowses beach. From this platform, anglers can catch striped bass, bluefish and scup that are passing through the inlet that connects East Bay to Nantucket Sound. There are even cutting boards available to fillet your catch. On the open ocean side, you will find anglers spread out along the rock jetty that extends out into the ocean. Early mornings at first light is a great time to find some fish. The Bays: West Bay, North Bay and Prince’s Cove provide an amazing inshore fishery right in the backyard of Osterville. Striped bass prefer colder water, so during the months of May and October, you can find large fish close to home. You will see anglers cruising around in small skiffs, aluminum boats and kayaks. Smaller “schoolie” bass remain in the bays all summer and bluefish don’t mind the warmer summer water temperatures. CONT’D www.ostervillevillagelibrary.org 21
  • Osterville Cut: During the fishing season (late April through October) you will find anglers on the rock jetty at the Osterville Cut (at the end of Sea View Ave.) on a daily basis. The current can be moving through the inlet at a rapid speed, so it is often best to use a weighted jig or some lure that will get down in the current. However, always keepFISHING your eyes out for breaking fish. Early mornings will often produce large schools of breaking striped bass that can be an incredible sight. Cast a popper into the mix and you’re almost certain to get a fish. My favorite “go to” popper is a white “smack it.” Words of Wisdom Here are a few pointers culled from my experience fishing around Osterville: Bluefish: By Memorial Day weekend, bluefish have usually arrived in large numbers. Your best shot is from any ocean facing beach such as Dowses, the beach at the end of Wianno Ave., the Osterville Cut jetty or Sampson’s Island. Casting surface poppers is usually all it takes to attract these toothy game fish. However, don’t forget a wire leader when chasing blues, as their sharp teeth can easily slice through your fishing line. If you have a boat, sometimes it’s as simple as driving out the Osterville Cut and looking for birds swarming over schools of fish. I often see breaking bluefish right in the channel. Bottom Fish and Southern Speedsters: In addition to striped bass and bluefish, the rocky shoals just outside the Osterville Cut, attract anglers from many states for the incredible supply of black sea bass and scup. These are great fish to target with kids and black sea bass is one of the best eating fares in town. In the fall, Osterville residents will notice a fleet of small boats racing around off the Wianno Club. They are chasing False Albacore, Bonito and Spanish Mackerel, all southern fish that arrive late summer when the water temps heat up. These fish are a favorite for anglers with fly rods and light tackle. They are tricky to catch, but provide an exciting fishery.22
  • FISHINGGETTING STARTEDTackle Shops and Saltwater License: The best resource for advice onrods, reels, lures and bait is always your local tackle shops. Just minutesfrom Osterville are Powderhorn Outfitters on Barnstable Road andSports Port on West Main Street, both in Hyannis. They will get youset up with the correct gear and provide tips on location, techniqueand provide you with up-to-date reports on when and where the fishare biting.In 2011 a new regulation was enacted that now requires anglers tohave saltwater fishing licenses. Here is a quick recap of the rule: under16 years of age, you are not required to have a license. Fishing ona properly licensed charter boat (see sidebar, page 24), you are notrequired to have a license. Over age 60, you are required to havea license, but there is no cost. Everyone else, $10 and you are good togo. However, while most tackle shops sell freshwater licenses; you willhave to get your saltwater license by calling 866.703.1925 or online atwww.mass.gov/dfwele/licensing/index.htm.GETTING OUT THEREOsterville Anglers Club: Established in 1988 by local Ostervillebusinessmen, the OAC is now celebrating its 25th anniversary.Located in a beautiful waterfront facility in Crosby Yacht Basin,The OAC considers itself the Cape’s best family fishing club. It istruly a year-round club with winter seminars and workshops, socialevents and a schedule of tournaments throughout the summer. Ata cost of $500 per year for a family membership, the OAC is alsoconsidered one of the Cape’s most affordable clubs. For informationon the club, visit www.ostervilleanglersclub.com. CONT’D www.ostervillevillagelibrary.org 23
  • Charter Boats Whether you are new to fishing or an old salt, the best experience can often be with a professional charter captain. Typically you can just show up with some food, sun tan lotion and your camera to capture the day’s specialFISHING moments. Here are a few local charter captains that I can highly recommend: Captain Henry O’Shaughnessy | www.gaelicwakesportfishing.com 508.776.4034 Captain Ron Murphy | www.straycatfishing.com 508.428.8628 Captain Barry Fraser | www.atsakeepa.com 508.367.2283 Tournaments: Several tournaments are held each year in Osterville – all for great causes: Joe Cronin Memorial Fishing Tournament August 2 Osterville Rotary Bluefish & Striper July 13 Tournament Cape Cod 5000 June 29-30 Ladies Shoal Troll July 27 Cape Cod Fall Classic September 13 Details on these can be found in our Event Calendar starting on page 40. Information on all local tournaments can be also obtained by calling The Osterville Anglers Club at 508.420.4336 or visit www.ostervilleanglersclub.com. Osterville and the surrounding waters offer a chance to enjoy a great summer day with your family and friends. I hope to see you on the water soon. – Bob Lewis Terry R.

  • Home-grown ProprietorsCOTé BROTHERS The Coté Brothers The late Robert Kennedy observed, “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.” And that is exactly what is happening in Osterville. Lifelong residents – brothers Nat and James Coté – are part of a new generation of committed business people and civic leaders who are carrying on the small-town traditions that make this community unique, while paving the way for new ones that will guarantee its continued success. Both of the Cotés were born and educated here. Nat, 35, then headed to Keene State University in New Hampshire, while baby brother James, 26, graduated from Gwynedd Mercy College in Pennsylvania. But both came back home to the place they’d always loved, and are now operating thriving businesses in the heart of the village. In November 2010, James took over ownership of Osterville House and Garden, where he had worked since his teens. Just a few short months later, in April of 2011, Nat bought what had long been the Osterville Cheese Shop, creating what is now Wianno Green Cafe, serving breakfast and lunch with a bird’s eye view of the village. Nat couldn’t be happier to be living and working in his hometown. “There’s something special about Osterville,” he says. “To be so close to the water, to have the ability to walk everywhere – these are just some of the things that make this place special, but mostly it’s the people. I love knowing all my customers – and getting to know new ones.” The Coté Brothers of Osterville: Nat (left) and James.26

He confessestha he has long loved hardwarestores, noting that they serveas a hub in a community.“They’re great places, actually.I love being able to help peoplesolve their problems.”He is so drawn to helping his neighbors that he also chose tobecome a Barnstable Town Councilor, representing the village.“I really wanted to play a bigger role in the life of the village.”He is also a member of the Osterville Business and ProfessionalAssociation, as well as the Osterville Village Association.James and his wife Megan also recently bought a home in thecenter of the village, ideally located for a quick commute to work.“I just love this village,” he said. “There’s just that small-townsomething about it that makes it special. It’s nice to be able towalk down the street and know your neighbors.” – Karyn Kuhn Wianno Green Cafe 29 Wianno Ave., Osterville (508)428.9085 www.wiannogreencafe.com www.ostervillevillagelibrary.org 27

  • Osterville: Gone to the DogsGONE TO THE DOGS It’s a dog’s life ... if you’re lucky enough to be a dog living in Osterville, that is. While Osterville is renowned as a great walking village, it’s not just great for two-legged residents. Osterville is a dog-friendly community with plenty of parks, paths, sidewalks, and beaches (note that the latter are available for dog walking September 16th through May 14th) open to well-behaved, licensed, and properly restrained pooches. But perhaps what makes this place so special for our canine friends is the passion dog owners have for their companions. For many, Fido is not just an animal, but rather a part of the family and frequently can be found cruising the byways in (well-ventilated) autos and trotting down village avenues. One recent afternoon dog owner and Osterville resident Dick Weir walked into Osterville House and Garden to ask the proprietor a question, and Sheila, his four- year-old shih tzu tagged along beside him at the end of a fashionable leash. Sheila, a regular in the store – and in the village – received a round of howdy-dos from the staff. Weir delights that the village is so welcoming to his dog – and to her many canine friends. He knows all the shops (and there are many) that provide treats for dogs, and some that even place bowls of water outside the door for a passing pup. 791 Main Street Osterville www.crispflatbread.com30ExperienceOsterville_Crisp_quarterh.indd 1 2/20/13 5:32 PM
  • “I walk my dog almost every day in the GONE TO THE DOGS village because it’s a good place for a stroll – as long as you are fastidious about picking up after your dog,” he says. “The library and the post office are great places for dogs – they offer cookies.” And then there is the postman who keeps canine cookies in the truck. Sheila has gotten so used to receiving his treats that she now follows all postal trucks, hoping for a treat. Osterville formally acknowledges its love of dogs several times a year. The Annual Mutts and Martinis social, which will be held on the Village Green this year Thursday, August 1, 2013 from 5:30-7:30 PM, is a social for dogs and their owners. The former indulge in a little puppy socialization while the latter mix it up over hors d’oeuvres and martinis.

  • Osterville Fun Facts! Courtesy of the Osterville Historical MuseumFUN FACTS Osterville has a rich and storied history. Here are just a few fun facts – perfect icebreakers for your next party: • Until the late 1980s, Osterville was the only place on Cape Cod to have direct long distance and international dialing without the need for telephone operator assistance. • Although Ralph and Martha Cahoon may make you think of Cotuit, they actually started their store on Main Street in Osterville by buying pre-made furniture at factories and then adding their artistic touch. Did you know that the Wianno Yacht Club was once at the end of Wianno Avenue? • Captain Kidd is reputed to have buried his treasure of gold coins on Grand Island (now known as Oyster Harbors) but he was never able to retrieve it as it was cursed by the woman he jilted known as Hannah Screecham. • The first bridge connecting Little Island to the mainland was not built until 1891. • In 1910, there were more than 5 large hotels in Osterville, including the Cotocheset House, the Crosby House, and East Bay Lodge. • In the first quarter of the twentieth century, there were as many as seven places in the Village to buy food including an A&P, the First National and Echo supermarkets, and specialty stores such as Williams meat market, Kalas’ fruit store, and E.E.C. Swift’s, which dates back to 1858 (now Fancy’s Market).34
  • Did you know that theCrosbys are America’s oldestboat-building family? FUN FACTS• Speaking of Swift’s, one of the Swift brothers went on to create a $250 million dollar meat packing empire in Chicago in the early 1900s, and he invented the refrigerated railroad car to transport his products. He learned his craft on his family’s Cape Cod farm and as the butcher at Swift’s in Osterville.• Until the area was settled by Europeans, Osterville was part of the “south sea lands” where Wampanoags came each summer to farm, fish and to enjoy the summer breezes.• While Osterville is well-known for its Crosby boats, Oliver Hinckley, whose yard was at the foot of Bay Street, built 23 vessels ranging from 53 to 160 tons between 1817 and 1845.• Route 28 used to run through the center of Osterville; from South County Road, down Main Street, across the Centerville Bridge.)Did you know that Ostervilleonce had a working salt farm?For more fun facts about Osterville, visit the Osterville HistoricalMuseum.

With the opening of the new Osterville Library in 2012, it has come a long way since its inception in 1873 in the dining room of the James Allen Lovell house on West Bay Road. Mrs. Thankful Ames, who lived there at the time, was the first librarian. The Library quickly outgrew these quarters and moved to the Old School House. Reverend E. B. Hinckley helped open the doors of a brand new building, designed by William Lloyd Gar- rison, and funded by Garrison and a group of Wianno residents, on January 2, 1882. In January 1957, the 75th Anniversary of the Osterville Free Library, it was time for another expansion to meet the needs of the growing community. The Board of Trustees purchased the Eaton’s Department Store property at the corner of Wianno Avenue and West Bay Road. The new Library was dedicated on Miss Katherine Hinckley, the July 27, 1958. librarian from 1917 to 1956, at In 1968 the North Room and basement were the circulation desk.

The Library Journal ratings were based on circulation, computer use, services and budget. 64% of the Osterville Library‘s annual budget is supported by fundraising. In fact, most of our operating income comes from outreach activities such as our annual appeal, and the many fundraising events held throughout the year, such as the golf tournaments and car raffle. Municipal funds account for 35.5% and state aid to Massachusetts libraries counts for only .5%. With our beautiful new space, and the support of our generous donors, we expect to continue to rank among the best libraries in the nation. AN OPEN INVITATION Please come in and enjoy your Library. Come often, enjoy the wonderful programs for all ages, and join your many neighbors who help support the Library with their time and talent.
