THE HISTORY OF SATURDAY FARM
The Saturday Farmhouse was built in the late 1700s by a seafaring captain named Baker. Most Cape residents during colonial times were involved in the maritime industry. Saturday Farm is located on Division Street, which used to be an old Native American path to the ocean, dividing two areas–Dennis and Harwich. Sometime prior to 1975, it was a small blueberry farm. After being gathered, blueberries were packaged for sale in the barn and sold out an opening in the back.
To this day, Saturday Farm still has horsehair plaster, wide plank floors, fireplaces with old cooking hardware attached, wavy old glass window panes, push button lights, and a set of captain's stairs.
