In the News

This summer, the Eastham Historical Society discovered a priceless piece of history: a document signed by former Massachusetts governor (and signee of the Declaration of Independence) Samuel Adams. 

The document dates back to June 7, 1785 and is currently in the process of being preserved. For more of the story, visit our In the News page. For the full story, visit the Cape Cod Times here.
