  4. 4. 2 Welcome WELCOME www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org It’s been five years of strong support from our advertisers and friends, adding over $100,000 to the Library coffers. This year, we’ve got even more events, organizations and businesses to tell you about. You may be holding our printed book in your hands or you can visit us at ExperienceOsterville.com, on your computer or mobile device. We’re everywhere! There are big changes at the Library in 2017. You can stop by to say hello to a familiar face in a new setting since our past Board President, Cyndy Cotton, has returned to become our new Executive Director. We’re so lucky to snag her. No one’s a bigger supporter of the Library than Cyndy. We’ve moved things around a little too! Come sit and talk with friends, play cards or board games or just work a puzzle — there’s a whole new patron’s common where friendly conversation is encouraged. For those of you looking for peace and quiet, we’ve designated the lower level as the “quiet zone.” Ssshh! I’m new too, starting my tour of duty as President of the Board of Trustees. If you don’t recognize my name, I’m a long-time Osterville resident. My family moved into the Village in 1965 when we bought the East Bay Lodge (sadly gone now). The first thing my mother did was bring all us kids to the library to get our library cards. I can still remember Mrs. Faser giving me the evil eye when I tried to borrow the “Valley of the Dolls.” Get ready for a big Library summer. It’s our 135th anniversary and we have lots of programs and activities arranged to celebrate. There’s a video full of interesting clips and interviews, as well as a book outlining our glorious history. Our 2017 season kicks off with our 40th annual golf tournament on May 19 at the Wianno Golf Club, followed closely by the arrival of our raffle car. Finally, one of our biggest changes will be transferring “tent week” to the week before Village Day. We’ll start off with a 135th anniversary bash, roll into a family clambake, our Mutts & Martinis dog festival and end with the Osterville Road Race. July 7-15 will be a busy week around here and you won’t want to miss it. To keep up with the latest Osterville has to offer, like us on Facebook, and visit ExperienceOsterville.com and OstervilleVillageLibrary.org.

  11. 11. Fitness (cont’d) Swimming Osterville has some of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod, and swimming builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. The US Census Bureau reports that two-and-a- half hours per week of aerobic physical activity such as swimming can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. People are typically able to exercise longer in water than on land with minimal joint or muscle pain. Joshua Pond or beautiful Dowses Beach are great choices for a great swim. Walking, Biking and Hiking 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, including Armstrong-Kelley Park. These routes will reward you with great views along the way.

  13. 13. 11 LIBRARY135TH ANNIVERSARY www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org I’ve really only known the Osterville Village Library for the last seven years after Joe Cedrone and I bought a weekend house in the village. I often went to the library on Saturday mornings to peruse the books and to get a sense of its history. I had a great interest in libraries as I had served as a trustee as well as treasurer of the Milton Public Library. When the new library, designed by Charles Bellingrath and Jeremiah Ford, was dedicated in 2012, it was impressive. It had three floors, was modern and state of the art, and had a wonderful staff that seemed not just helpful but friendly when I asked a variety of questions. We enthusiastically participated in the fundraising. We created tiles for the new Children’s Library and contributed to the building fund. So when I was approached by the library about writing the history of the Osterville Village Library (as I write on local history), not only was I honored but I was greatly intrigued. I sensed I would learn not just about the history of the library, but also about this village that I’d come to enjoy, with its bucolic setting on the Nantucket Sound, large swathes of protected land, and a village center that served all of our needs. The Osterville Free Library, as it was known when founded in 1882, can actually be traced back to 1873 as the Osterville Literary Society, and the lending library was located in the converted dining room of the James Allan Lovell House, where Thankful Hamblin Ames lived and served as the first librarian. The library was to outgrow the small room in less than a decade, and was moved to the Dry Swamp Academy behind the Osterville Baptist Church.

  14. 14. 14 In 1881 William Lloyd Garrison, Jr. solicited both year-round and summer residents to pledge money to build a new village library. Not just was the necessary money raised, but Garrison himself purchased the land on Main Street at Mulberry Corners, the junction of Parker Road and Main and Bay Streets. The library was built by Charles Daniel, a local builder. The incorporators of this new library were William Lloyd Garrison, Jr., Anna Davis Hallowell, Herman W. Chaplin, Francis J. Garrison, Pierrepont Wise, Charles W. Storey and Jeremiah Chaplin. As stated in its articles of incorporation, the library served as “the maintenance of a free library and reading room at Osterville in the Town of Barnstable in this Commonwealth, and the promotion of study and reading.” The small wood Queen Anne style library (now a part of Oyster Island Emporium) was opened to the public on January 2, 1882, and was the fourth library to be established on Cape Cod. (It was preceded by the Sturgis Library in 1863, the Hyannis Library in1865, and the Centerville Library in 1869.) Over the next seventy-five years, much of it overseen by librarians Reverend Edward Bourne Hinckley, Eliza Lovell, Bertha Lovell Hackett and Katherine Hinckley, the small library continued to grow and offer the lending of books, and a place for both students and adults to study and to read, as well as to act as a community center.

  15. 15. 13www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org 13 LIBRARY135TH ANNIVERSARY www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org The residents of Osterville, both permanent and summer, joined together to support the library through direct donations and events. By 1932, the library “kept pace with the growth of the community, as the telephone, the motor, the radio, have drawn it into more intimate contact with the world outsides of Cape Cod.” But by 1957, the small library had provided yeoman’s duty and was stretched to the limit. It was said that with increased requests “for certain books and cramped quarters for stacking and storing same have made it necessary…to plan a campaign to have a larger and more adequate facilities to keep abreast of present times.” A campaign was started with a then-anonymous donor, who provided matching funds of up to $100,000 before September 1, 1958. So successful was this 75th anniversary campaign that the library trustees engaged local Osterville architect Stanley F. Alger, Jr. Mr. Alger designed an attractive Colonial inspired library that transformed the old Eaton Store Block at the corner of Wianno Avenue and West Bay Road into a community center and a traditional library that quickly became a fun and engaging place for all. It was designed with ample space for an adults lounge, separate study areas for adults and young adults, and a children’s reading area with a hall that could be used for both lectures and story telling hours. From the capital campaign in 1957 that was so generously contributed to by Rachel Lowe Lambert Lloyd Mellon (known as “Bunny”) and Paul Mellon to the expansion in 1968 through a generous contribution by Maxwell Upson, the library was truly the pride of Osterville. It seemed as if everyone contributed to its expansion and well-being within their financial means. Eva Watson Weber Claudia Morner Barbara Conathan Susan Martin Margaret A.

  16. 16. Over the ensuing years, the Osterville Village Library continued to expand services. Circulation dramatically increased as did events and programs that brought in larger and more diverse audiences. Programs included art exhibits, the bi-weekly “Great Books” book discussions in the 1970s led by Kurt Vonnegut, an award-winning children’s film project “Fiction Friction” by Marjorie Lenk in 1972, and kite-flying day at Dowse’s Beach. Funds to support expanding programs were partially raised with a myriad of events that have become village traditions: benefit concerts, the golf tournament at the Wianno Golf Course, clambakes, road races and the annual car raffle. The trustees and library staff have been greatly aided by the Friends of the Osterville Village Library. What really impressed me was when I perused the trustees’ minutes (yes, I read every line from 1882 to the present) and scrapbooks from the 1950s to the present was to see so many dedicated people who did their best to support the library and make it accessible to all. The newest iteration of the Osterville Village Library has brought hundreds of residents and friends who share, with pride, in the vast achievements since 1882, when the library was formally incorporated and dedicated to the ideals of a free lending library and in “the promotion of study and reading.” My labor of love, Osterville Village Library (Arcadia Publishing, 2017) is a heavily illustrated book with more than two hundred photographs of the various library buildings, the trustees, library staff, patrons, and those who supported the library by attending the myriad events held over the years. This book was a fascinating research project that chronicles not just the growth and development of the library over the last 135 years, but also reinforces that the library is truly the center of Osterville Village. – Anthony M.

  19. 19. cont’d 17 WHAT’SINANAME? www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org This is Osterville. Here we are privileged to live in an intimacy with water. Our time here is spent in a land by the ocean and punctuated by a collection of kettle ponds, rivers, bogs, and tidal streams. Water is not only our constant companion today, it is also the link to those who came here before us. It is water that tells us how we came to have the name Osterville. And Wianno, and Cotacheset, as well. The newcomers at Plymouth Colony were attracted to our waters once they discovered oysters in awesome plentitude here. They delegated Myles Standish to negotiate with the indigenous leader Paupmunnuck for the purchase of what was soon known as Oyster Island Village. Oyster Island is now the site of Oyster Harbors. The price? Two copper kettles and some material to make fences. Paupmunnuck reserved from the sale a neck of land of about thirty acres for his own residence, which afterward was known as Indian Fields, or in his language, Kokachoise — or Cotacheset. A stretch of land toward the ocean was named in honor of the neighbor- ing sachem Iyanough. Wianno is the Anglicization. Settlers of hardy stock soon followed. They had names like Thompson, Lovell, Goodspeed, Lumbert, Bumpus, and Hatch. Names that live on in various forms. Others of differing nationalities and different sounding names came later, but brought similar commitment to hard work, family, church and community. Women and men — and children too — engaged in the backbreaking work required to wrest a living from the land. And, these townspeople over time came to know Oyster Island Village as Oysterville. The people of Oysterville supported themselves by growing crops, gathering oysters, sometimes pickling the surplus bivalves for export, and melting their shells to make lime for the continuing procession of construction projects. What’s in a Name? How Osterville became Osterville
  20. 20. What’s in a Name? (cont’d) Years later the small community developed other businesses centered on the water, including boat- building, and coasting, or transporting commodities up and down the East Coast. With the exuberant confidence and patriotic pride that followed the Revolution and the War of 1812, Oysterville families felt it was time for another village name change. Gathering one species of shellfish was not all that defined this vibrant community of farmers, boat-builders, carpenters, and seamen. In authentic New England Town Meeting tradition, the people gathered in celebration at Village Hall, at the corner of Main Street and East Bay Road, to officially declare that their name was Osterville. As the nineteenth century matured, small-scale agriculture became increasingly difficult, railroads competed with schooners in distributing commercial goods, and the Civil War disrupted boat building. In response, Osterville families began to reach out to the wider world in sharing the beauty of their watery surroundings. Families from up- the-coast Boston, and from the American Midwest came to spend the summer with Osterville families as lodgers. Homes were expanded to become inns, or “lodges.” Visiting families became so attached to Osterville that they began to buy and build their own houses. Many of the fresher immigrants who came to build or work in the new edifices, stayed here, seasoning our melting pot. Osterville’s summer people have made unique and life-changing investments in the life of the year-round village. William Lloyd Garrison’s foundational work on behalf of the Osterville Free Library (see article starting on page 11) is among the splashier examples. All because of the water and its reflections of light and beauty. A special place defined by its waters. This is Osterville. – Joseph Doolin WHAT’SINANAME? 18 Fertigo Pro Regular Caviar Dreams FONTS: Hex#24B9AE / R36 G185 B174 / C72 M0 Y39 K0 Hex#1A959D / R26 G149 B157 / C80 M23 Y37 K1 Hex#404041 / R64 G64 B65 / C0 M0 Y0 K90 15 W.

  21. 21. In 1639, English settlers called this village Oyster Island until the villagers changed the name to Oysterville and then to Osterville in 1815. Today, Osterville is home to thriving oyster farms like Barnstable Sea Farms and the largest oyster farm in the state, Cape Cod Oyster Company. In 2008, Cape Cod Oyster Company & Barnstable Sea Farms donated 20,000 oysters for recreational oystering. David Ryan and Albert Suprenant own the Cape Cod Oyster Company and market WiAnno oysters along with Aquator Marketing’s Eric Kaiser. Hence, the capitol A in WiAnno stands for Aquator. They employ eight people and have a new packing plant in Marston Mills. Mr. Suprenant said that during the earlier years of oyster fishing, southern coastal schooners would come up to finish the oysters in the clear water and sandy floors of Cape Cod. Shell fishermen like Joe Crosby in the 1930s would harvest and sell the oysters until disease became a problem in the 1960s, and aqua-culture leases were rescinded by the towns that were impacted. The leases were re-installed in the 1980ws when the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences came up with a disease-resistant oyster. That’s when Cape Cod Oyster Company got its start. The old-wives tale is that oyster fishing only happens in months with “R” in them. Barnstable Sea Farms & Cape Cod Oyster Company operate 24/7 all year long and their products are available all year long. Recreational oyster fishing, however, is limited to the months November to March. Cape Cod Oyster has two grow-out methods in two locations. One is for free- range oysters at the bottom of West Bay in Nantucket Sound. It is sub-tidal year-round with few predators. After a full season in upwellers, juvenile oysters are graded and planted or held back. A boat goes between the two rows of cages for harvesting. After harvesting they are power-washed, hand-packed for distribution. WiAnno oysters are distributed internationally and to large companies like Legal Seafoods and Mortons. The other location is in Cape Cod Bay in Barnstable Harbor with off-bottom bags and cages in a sixty-acre community aquaculture plot. An oyster dredge and winch are used to pull up the bags.

  22. 22. Oysters & Osterville (cont’d) Supplying local restaurants like Five Bays, a dozen Hyannis restaurants, and regional wholesalers with oysters is the mission of Barnstable Sea Farms. The oyster company has been in operation since 1991 and has two sites in Barnstable Harbor and one in Osterville. Barnstable Sea Farms is owned by Les Hemmila and his son Jared. Barnstable Sea Farms produce product year-round with their Sandy Neck Oysters, grown in cages and bags in Barnstable Harbor from early-summer to mid-winter, and their Garrison Point oysters grown on the bottom in Osterville’s West Bay from January to late summer. As for taste, a bay-grown oyster has a briny taste and bottom-grown oysters have a more mineral taste. Shells are thicker on bottom-grown oysters. Oysters filter 30 gallons of water on average per day making the Bays cleaner. The town of Barnstable’s Three Bays Watershed 208 Plan Implementation Project will use oysters to bring the Bays to a new level of cleanliness. Water temperatures have not changed in the Bays so the oysters are thriving. According to the Marine and Environmental Affairs Office, recreational oystering is available at the town way on Bridge Street and the north side of Scudder Lane. If you want to try oystering, you first need to get your shell-fishing license at town hall. Licenses are available from November to March to residents for $30, non- residents for $120 and $60 for seasonal families. A senior resident family license is $20. You only need your hands to get oysters, but a quahog or clam rake is helpful too. You will also need a 10-quart metal wire peck bucket and a gauge to measure the oysters. Limits on size are posted annually. The current limit on quantity is one level peck per week and the season ends April 1st. Permits are available at the Marine and Environmental Affairs Office, 189 Phinney’s Lane, Centerville, 508-790-6272. Proof of residency is required. For more information on the regulations and how to get your shell-fishing license, go to www.town.barnstable.ma.us/naturalresources/shellfishing.asp. Also, it is a good idea to consult a tidal chart because low tide is better for harvesting. If you want to try local oysters, try them at a local restaurant like Five Bays, dig some of your own, or go to Legal Seafoods when you are away from the Cape. You can eat them raw, cooked, or fried. If you are visiting here or live here, remember that the oysters were so abundant that settlers called it Oyster Island Village. With the clear water and sandy bottom, it is a very happy place for oysters and for oyster lovers. – Diane Spencer OYSTERS&OSTERVILLE 22 Tiny oysters, which grow into WiAnno oysters (Yes, capital A – it’s their brand).

  24. 24. 25 JACKCOTTON www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Luxury real estate expert, teacher, and best- selling author Jack Cotton knows the power of home. As a young boy, he constructed his own secret houses in the undeveloped woods of 1950s Osterville. The building boom had just begun in his Tower Hill neighborhood and when this oldest child of a single mom needed a refuge, scrap lumber was easy to come by at the burgeoning construction sites. Life wasn’t easy for his family struggling to pay the bills, hold onto their house, and gain respect in a tight community made up almost exclusively of two-parent families. He says his retreat to “one of his little houses under the trees” made “everything right in [his] world.” He remembers “the grain of the wood lighting up in the mid-day sun and the smell of the fresh-cut wood” and credits those powerful, early experiences as the seeds of his future success as the region’s legendary high-end home salesman. “That’s the feeling I’ve never been able to get away from and that’s what drove me to this business.” In 1974, while still an undergraduate at Babson College, he founded Cotton Real Estate from his dorm room, later becoming nationally known for his business acumen, integrity, and a sales team responsible for thousands of luxury property transactions over three decades. When he sold the company to Sotheby’s International (where he still works) in 2005, he says, “One of the first things I bought was a tree house.” This time, instead of being constructed of scrap lumber, it was fashioned by a custom tree-house builder and transported, including the tree, by 18-wheeler from California to Cape Cod for his two youngest children. Cotton laughs and says the hollowed-out, eight-foot diameter trunk, complete with “Keebler elf-style” door “cost more than [his] first house!” But Cotton doesn’t seem to mind. For him, a refuge large or small is worth everything. “A lot of people get into real estate because they don’t know what else to do and it’s a means to an end, but to me it’s the beginning, the middle, and the end. For me to help other people capture that ‘all’s right with the world’ feeling in their own space — whether it’s a big house or a little house — it’s all the same to me… That’s why I’m so obsessed with it. To me a house is…your oasis from the storm of life. It’s your security. It’s where you can let down your hair, be you, recharge, reconnect, rejuvenate.” Cotton’s books, DVDs, and webinars have extended his outreach and made him an international fixture on the real estate scene.

  25. 25. Jack Cotton (cont’d) Selling Luxury Homes, 12 Secrets Luxury Home Buyers Know, and 12 Secrets Luxury Home Sellers Know have all been Amazon top-sellers along with A Dog’s Guide To Life: Lessons from Moose which was written for his two oldest children commemorating not only the family dog but the ingredients for a successful life. He is a sought-after coach whose online group and individual counseling attracts followers from around the globe. He could live anywhere but says Osterville has always been home. ”Even when we were very young, we knew we were living in a special place.” He has always loved the waterfront, explaining, “I got a wooden rowboat in the fifth grade…I built a trailer out of lawnmower wheels and I used to drag that from Tower Hill down to East Bay and…I would just row everywhere so I really got to know the waterfront.” The boy who once dragged his rowboat via handmade trailer just to be on the water, grew up to sell many of the houses he so admired from his pram. How? According to him, by “outworking everyone.” Many residents of his favorite town served as mentors and substitute grandparents along the way. He cites in particular the merchants of Osterville who kept watch over the behavior of the town’s children, the generosity of real estate predecessor Helen McLellan who helped him in his early days, the Cotuit widow who trusted him as a young man to sell her luxury waterfront property, modest and savvy Barnstable landowner John Shields, and best friend and business advisor, the late John Alger, whom he still misses terribly. It was Alger who reinforced the one question on which Cotton now bases his consultations, his business, and the training and education courses at his Cotton Center for Real Estate Studies at Cape Cod Community College: “What is in the best interest of the client?” For thousands of individuals, Cotton has successfully answered that question. – Sara Hoagland Hunter JACKCOTTON 26 cher Bonnie Britt 617.877.4145 Melinda Chapin 508.341.2054 Carol Childs 508.246.1982 n Joan Witter 508.776.1971 Lisa Worthen 508.737.9387 Colleen Riley 508.367.3320 Peggy Rowland 339.927.0261 Ellen Valentgas 508.648.5086 Jack Cotton 508.957.5500 Gail Germain-Martis 508.776.8311 Susan Gill 508.776.0621 da Jack Largay 508.776.3769 Jan Macallister 508.280.5414 Jennifer McCartin 508.367.6611 sothebyshomes.com/capecod

  27. 27. WINTERINOSTERVILLE 28 “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” The words of John Ruskin ring true to all of us hearty Cape Codders — whether full-time, xjpart- time, or once-upon-a-time residents. Our seaside village of Osterville transforms with the first snowfall of the season. Vistas are opened with leafless trees and offer views only rarely seen. And believe it or not, as magical as Osterville is in the summer, it is equally delightful when the first snowflakes fall. The winds whipping off Nantucket Sound create mini-blizzards across the sweeping hills and valleys of the golf courses. And snow quickly piles high in the most unexpected places. But no windstorm will delay the gathering families and squeals of glee surrounding the third hole of the Wianno Golf Course. This downhill sledding venue is a favorite of young and old. It is just a stone’s throw from the Crosby Boat Yards and the Osterville Historical Museum. If you go, be sure to bring your toboggan. And don’t forget the beach! Dowses Beach takes on a wintery charm with the crisp winds blowing off the ocean. Mittens and boots take the place of sunscreen and beach towels. There are always new treasures to find washed onshore in the days following storms. Full snow moons and crisp night skies filled with stars are more reflective than ever in the cold air. Life takes on a slower pace in the Village with even more conversations happening on the sidewalks, at the post office, or while picking up a muffin & coffee at Earthly Delights or a quiche & latte at Amie’s Bakery. Everything you need, you can find at the House & Garden or pick up from Fancy’s. No need to go further — unless you want to.... Friends gather for warm chowder at Wimpy’s or a rocket salad and flatbread du jour at Crisp. The lines are a bit shorter, but the hospitality is as warm as ever. And as it has been for over 40 years, the latest news is always to be found at the two barbershops in town. The Christmas Stroll turns the Village into a storybook setting with “Jingle Bells” being sung by the St. Peter’s Nursery School students and carolers on the steps of the Osterville Baptist Church. The 1820s Captain Jonathan Parker House is aglow with the annual Festival of Trees at the Osterville Historical Museum, while the non-denominational crèche service reminds us what the joy of the season truly means. It is a time not unlike the days of the snow plows drawn by teams of horses (owned by Winter in Osterville Winter Wonderland. Photos this page courtesy of Jennifer Williams

A time when 10-year-old Lucy Baxter, a student at Osterville’s Dry Swamp Academy, wrote in her diary in 1862: February 3rd This morning it was quite pleasant and before night we had a driving snowstorm. Grandpa came up to the schoolhouse after me. I am in the 1st class in spelling. I have 39 words in my book. We are going to spell them next Friday. I got above Joseph Waitt. February 4th Today it is pleasant, but there is so much snow on the ground that I did not get to school. I am sorry because I shall have to go down to No. 25 in the spelling class. Tomorrow I think I shall go down to Mr. Erastus Scudder’s after a spelling book. Perhaps the only difference is that today kids of all ages hope for a snow day (or two!) to soak in the beauty of this place we call Osterville. – Jennifer Williams, Executive Director, Osterville Historical Society 29 WINTERINOSTERVILLE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Music & merriment at Osterville’s annual Christmas stroll.

Osterville Village Library’s 135th Year Opening Doors, Lives and Minds Cyndy Cotton, Executive Director Osterville Village Library If you haven’t visited the library recently, now is the time. As we celebrate our 135th Anniversary, we’re making changes to ensure we continue to meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s patrons. During the first year of the library’s existence, just having the opportunity to borrow a book from Thankful Ames’s makeshift library in her dining room was a wonderful privilege for Osterville residents. Today, our residents — both year-round and summer — expect a lot more. And we’re delivering. With the help and support of our donors, staff, board and volunteers, we’re becoming a vibrant community center that offers programs and events for all ages, and meets the daily needs of everyone in the community from toddlers to remote workers to senior citizens. For those of you who are working remotely, come visit our business center, with wifi, color and black and white printers; scanning and fax capabilities and a shredder. If you’re looking for a cozy place to spend a rainy day, our Atrium offers a comfortable sitting area to play games, tackle a puzzle, talk or read. Our Fireside Reading room continues to be a favorite spot to catch up on the daily news, read, study or just enjoy the quiet ambiance.
