Welcome to the Town of Harwich Massachusetts, sister Town to Harwich England. Founded in 1694, Harwich is made up of Seven Villages on Cape Cod. With a population of 12,677 full time residents and a summer population of approximately 40,000, Harwich has much to offer including four protected harbors, tranquil beaches, historic architecture, bike and hiking trails, arts, culture, cuisine, shopping and more.

Harwich has a traditional New England "Open Town Meeting" form of government, with professional leadership combining a Town Administrator and an Elected Board of Selectmen. We have dedicated this site to provide you with access to information and services within the Town. Please visit our partner, the Harwich Chamber of Commerce, to learn more about area lodging, businesses and special events.
Whether you’re here to play for the day or stay for awhile, we know you’ll enjoy Harwich.
