HARWICH – The Harwich Conservation Trust will host a guided history walk within old Monomoyick Native American Territory next weekend.

Twelfth generation Cape Codder Todd Kelley and native Nipmuc/Wampanoag Marcus Hendricks will lead the walk on Saturday, September 14 in East Harwich, which explores the history of the area from 1620-1820.

Attendees will learn about how dramatically the lives of the First People and the land were influenced and altered during the seventeenth century.

The walk will explore the land once known as Captain Jeethro’s farm and visit the feasting site overlook that Squanto and Bradford likely visited when they came into Pleasant Bay to negotiate for corn in 1622.

Learn how this area was the seat of the greater of the greater Monomoyick Homeland and how it held onto this ancient legacy up through the last unbroken blood-line of Hosey Stephen, who died in 1800, and her husband Micah Rafe, who died in 1816.

The cost for the guided walk is $20. It runs from 10 a.m. to noon and is about 1.5 miles.

Directions will be emailed with a reservation confirmation.
