Overview


Located on scenic Cape Cod, Dennis experienced a transformation beginning in the early 1900s. What was once a predominantly seafaring- and farming-oriented community grew to become a prime vacation and tourist destination with pristine beaches on both Cape Cod Bay and Nantucket Sound and quaint, historic villages, which predate the town's 1793 incorporation. Through vintage postcards from local residents, the Cape Cod Postcard Collectors Club, and the archives of the Dennis Historical Society, Dennis provides an interesting view of this town from the late 1890s to the 1960s. Most of the scenes are highly recognizable to seasonal visitors and residents alike, and illustrate the businesses, streets, homes, and places of interest that make up the fabric of the Dennis community.
