  6. 6. Wings, Fins Watery Wonders and Exploring wildlife in the Three Bays Watershed Cape Cod — the name conjures up images of sandy beaches and endless waves. The 12,458- acre Three Bays watershed not only has the beaches and waves, but also includes bays, salt marshes, rivers, ponds and cranberry bogs. These diverse habitats in our watershed are home to a variety of wildlife species, if you know where to look. The intertidal zone — the area between a beach and the water itself — is alive with all kinds of wildlife, large and small. It’s not uncommon to spot a tiny grey and black-ringed shorebird with fast-moving feet scuttering from the wrack line to the water’s edge and back. These piping plovers make the trip from the Bahamas to nest on our beaches and raise their young. Other birds seen along the beach include cormorants, herring gulls, Least and Common terns, and willets. Jellies can be seen pulsating throughout the shallow and deeper waters around the bays and beaches. Some of these species, like the milky- white and pinkish sea nettle with incredibly long tentacles, to the wide pink moon jelly, can deliver a painful sting to whoever accidentally crosses its path. The sea nettle is a favorite snack of sea turtles found swimming off shore. Much more plentiful along the shoreline are comb jellies, small, clear, and iridescent, which have no stinging capabilities. While wading in the water, take caution not to accidentally step on any crabs buried in the sand. cont’d THREEBAYSWILDLIFE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Osprey 5
  7. 7. THREEBAYSWILDLIFE 6 Three Bays Wildlife cont’d Blue crabs will stop and hold their claws up, ready to fight, while a lady crab will be more likely to swim away. Fiddler crabs live in the grasses and salt marshes adjacent to the water’s edge. The male fiddler crab has one exceptionally large claw to attract females, hence their name. These crabs won’t pinch unless provoked. Despite being the largest “crab” found in the Three Bays watershed, horseshoe crabs are in fact more closely related to spiders and have been around since before dinosaurs roamed the earth. Their tails are often mistaken for a stinger, when in fact they serve as a rudder and a tool used for flipping themselves over. You will often find what appears to be many horseshoe crabs scattered along the beach. These are empty shells from when they molt and grow a new and larger one. While walking, don’t forget to keep an eye out for the variety of shells scattered along the shoreline and in the water. Scallops, slipper shells, mussels, jingle shells, quahogs, moon snails, periwinkles, whelks and oysters are some of the more common species you will find in our watershed. When thinking about the Three Bays watershed, it’s important to not forget the animals that live near and in our rivers and ponds. A favorite pastime among both locals and tourists alike is kayaking. Slowly paddling along the edge of a pond, one can encounter multiple species of colorful lilies and berries. Birds like great blue herons and green herons can be found slowly stalking their next meal along the water’s edge, taking each step slowly and deliberately. Bullfrogs and snakes love using these lilies and aquatic grasses for sunbathing and protection from predators. If you do happen to encounter a snake, take comfort in the fact that Cape Cod contains no venomous snakes; although some species such as the black racer and northern water snake can be aggressive. Northern water snakes can also be seen curled up along sunny banks of a pond or river. Old logs that fell from violent winter storms are typically strewn around ponds, creating a perfect environment for sunbathing painted and spotted cont’d Painted Turtle Camouflaged Bullfrog Blue Crab
  8. 8. BIRDWATCHING KIT If you’re thinking of heading outside to do some local birdwatching, stop by the Library and borrow our complete birdwatching kit!
  9. 9. 9 THREEBAYSWILDLIFE www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Three Bays Wildlife cont’d turtles. If you get too close, the turtles will plop into the water, where they will swim toward shade to hide from predators. Other turtle species, including snapping turtles, call the muddy bottom of a pond or stream their home, occasionally coming to the surface for a quick breath or meal. Keep your eyes open for these turtles. They have an extremely powerful bite that can do serious damage to limbs. As you wander through the watershed, don’t forget to look up. Often, you can see an osprey soaring high above. If you’re lucky, you’ll witness an osprey dive for its food. They drop toward the water at full speed and hit the surface like a bullet, spraying water in every direction. If successful, the osprey will be clutching a fish in their sharp talons as they fly back to their nest perched high above in a tree, on a utility or osprey pole, or a chimney. If you look carefully, you may catch a glimpse of a fish swimming underwater in the bays, rivers or ponds. A variety of fish species live in the Three Bays watershed including blueback and alewife herring, American eels, striped bass, flounder, killifish, scup, and pickerel, to name a few. As you can see, the waters throughout the Three Bays watershed are home to many different species. We must work together to protect and preserve these waters for future generations.

Home, Sweet Home-away-from-Home Osterville’s Historic Inns & Lodges The West Bay Inn interior, circa 1900 Exterior and grounds of the West Bay Inn circa 1900 11 Pack your bags and board the train to the West Barnstable train station. Captain Bursley will be waiting with his stagecoach to take you to your destination. Through a heavily wooded dirt path, your coach will emerge by the seaside in the small village of Osterville. Main Street is lined with beautiful trees and private homes. Down the lane you catch the warm afternoon sea breeze from the bays. The ocean is not far. First stop? The West Bay Inn. The West Bay Inn was located directly on the waters of West Bay off Eel River Road. An ad in the July 11, 1914 edition of the Boston Evening Transcript states: The West Bay Inn is a “Modern Hotel, directly on the water, open until October 1. Always cool, fine bathing beach on property. Cuisine the best on Cape Cod. Seafood a specialty. Reduced rates for September. Special prices to Clubs. Send for booklet E. S. Crocker, Proprietor.” The West Bay Inn was built in 1905 and, like most inns in Osterville, offered easy access to boating and a bathing beach. Boasting 65 rooms, the West Bay Inn was a very popular destination with sweeping views of Nantucket Sound. It faced the southwest and because of its location, was able to take advantage of the prevailing ocean breeze. It was reported to be the coolest location in all of Osterville. cont’d HISTORICHOTELS
  12. 12. Osterville’s Historic Inns & Lodges cont’d In October of 1935, a massive fire broke out one evening at the West Bay Inn. Despite the response from the Centerville-Osterville fire department and help from the villages of Hyannis and Cotuit, the building was a complete loss. At the time, damages were estimated at $50,000. In today’s figures, that would be over $1 million. There was no wind that night, so buildings nearby were not damaged. Hundreds of people came to watch the massive glow from the inferno. The inn had been unoccupied for two weeks, according to the owner Edward S. Crocker. The property had been advertised for sale. It was only partially covered by insurance. The East Bay Lodge, located on East Bay Road, was built in 1886 by retired sea captain Nelson H. Bearse, Jr. It dominated the seaside landscape of Osterville during its glory years in the early 1900s. On a sunlit summer day, the view from the tree-lined driveway next to the lodge was magnificent. Visitors called it one of “the choicest resorts on the New England shore.” In June of 1904, a Sunday afternoon dinner at East Bay Lodge cost 75¢. The East Bay Lodge changed owners throughout the years until it was demolished in the late 1990s to makeway for condominiums. Many Cape Cod families remember staying at the lodge, celebrating weddings there, or enjoying a traditional Sunday brunch. The interior furnishings of the East Bay Lodge were lavish for the day. Oriental rugs covered the wooden floors, and upholstered and wooden furniture decorated the main rooms. The interior of the East Bay Lodge circa 1910 Golfing at the Seapuit Club circa 1915 HISTORICHOTELS
  13. 13. 13 HISTORICHOTELS www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org The dining rooms were set with white tablecloths, fine china (see below), and silver. Despite closing in 1998, the china and silver are still highly collectible, as are ads and matchbook covers. Occasionally memorabilia can still be found in Cape Cod antiques shops. The Crosby House on West Bay Road was originally the home of Mrs. Tirzah Crosby. Her son Horace and his wife Lucy opened the Crosby House as a hotel in 1860. Each year, they continued to add on to the house to increase capacity. At its height, the Crosby House could host up to 50 guests. In an August 18, 1891 newspaper article, the guests at the Crosby House reportedly enjoyed a “hop” (party) at one of the boat shops the previous Saturday night. The grandson of the owners, Harold Crosby, eventually took over the Crosby House. Its reputation for being a hospitable place continued with a July 17, 1920 Masquerade party in which Crosby himself was crowned “King.” Another direct mail piece beckoned guests to stay at the Crosby House during the winter months. “Call Cotuit 196 and say that you are coming to spend a few days with us. The house is steam heated throughout, unexcelled table, moderate prices. Rates $6.00 per day, special weekly rates. Five golf courses within an hour’s ride, excellent fishing, 15 miles of good shore bird shooting. Anticipating the pleasure of seeing you, I remain very truly yours, Laurence Welch, Manager, Leonard J. Bliss, Proprietor.” The inn was sold in 1927 to Bliss, and it became known as Osterville Manor. Many smaller inns were located throughout Osterville. The Spruce Tree Lodge located on Parker Road was another small inn operated by Jeanette Bowes. It was previously the summer house of Misses Josephine and Margaret Carret of Boston. That building was torn down in the 1970s to make way for condos.

  15. 15. Further down Parker Road, you would find Aunt Tempy’s Tea House. Named after Temperance Crocker Parker, Aunt Tempy’s was another place to enjoy a mid-day meal. The Lincoln Club House was located on “Breezy Bluff” just before the bridge to Oyster Harbors. In 1895, the Josiah A. Ames house began welcoming a large group of “fresh air” boys along with their teachers. Ames worked with the Lincoln Club in Boston, and the program brought children to Osterville for short vacations throughout the summer months. It was expanded to include young girls and mothers with babies. It was designed to give them “a chance to breathe the fresh, country air, and return to their work refreshed and strengthened.” Today, you can easily see the “A-frame” roofed houses at the beginning of the bridge to Oyster Harbors. The grand Cotocheset House located on Sea View Avenue was the largest of Osterville’s hotels. The original building was built in 1873 by a group that included Scudders and Crockers among others. It offered a number of amenities including tennis courts, a bowling alley, a freshwater lake, easy access to the beach, pier, and Aunt Tempy’s Tea House circa 1940 Lincoln Club House circa 1910 Cotocheset House circa 1895 Osterville’s Historic Inns & Lodges cont’d 15 HISTORICHOTELS www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org cont’d
  16. 16. HISTORICHOTELS 16 Thankful Hamblin Ames boardwalk. The original building burned in 1887 after a fire was discovered on the third floor by two members of the staff — Lizzie Small and Hattie Lovell. Luckily, all of the guests were able to evacuate with enough time to safely retrieve their belongings. Construction on the new building began the next day. Thankful Hamblin Ames, who lived on East Bay Road with her husband Granville Ames, served as the proprietor of the Cotocheset House. The day following the fire at the Cotocheset, she served a full dinner under a tent to all of the guests. She was one of the first women to vote in Osterville after the Women’s Suffrage Amendment passed in 1920. Daniel Webster’s house in Boston provided the original stone foundation for the Cotocheset. His mansion burned to the ground in 1872. The name Cotocheset came from the Native American who originally owned the land. In 1916, the Cotocheset became the Wianno Club. Due to its architectural and historical significance, the Wianno Club was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Another local club that featured a hotel as well as a golf course was The Seapuit Club, which stretched over 1,000 acres in Osterville and Marstons Mills. The Mayflower was the name of the main 50-room inn. It was torn down in 1932 at a cost of $400, although the golf course was still used for several more years. Today, in the age of Airbnb, VRBO and cozier bed and breakfasts, Osterville’s historic hotels are a quaint memory of a more gracious time.

  17. 17. Storm surge during Hurricane Carol on August 31, 1954 An abandoned car on the Centerville/Osterville Bridge, one of many damaged during the 1944 hurricane known as the “Great Atlantic Hurricane.”
  18. 18. 19 STORMWARNING www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org We traditionally have a lot of seasonal visitors on Cape Cod. Friends and relatives abound during the summer months in Osterville. But when you mention names like Carol and Bob, a different kind of visitor comes to mind. Hurricane Bob (August 19, 1991) remains fresh in most memories with Cape-wide loss of power for over a week and over $1 billion in damage to Massachusetts alone. When Bob arrived on Cape Cod, he was a weakening category 2 hurricane. However, he still packed enough of a punch that hundred-year-old trees on East Bay Road simply toppled over. The leafy canopy providing shade on the winding road was altered forever. Waves were so high in the gale force winds that they crashed over the bridge to Oyster Harbors. And many boats ended up far off in the marshes surrounding the bays. Bob hit on a Monday morning in the height of the summer season. Many people joined in an 11-mile back-up at the Sagamore Bridge in an attempt to get off-Cape. In the days after the storm passed through, the salt spray from the ocean caused the leaves of trees to prematurely turn brown. It was as if fall had hit overnight. The Cape Cod tourism industry took a big loss that August and September. Most of the public relations effort centered around, “Yes. Cape Cod is still open for business.” And then there was Carol in 1954. Hurricane Carol, and her twin sister Edna, hit Cape Cod as category 3 storms. In fact, the name Carol has been officially retired from the NOAA listing of annual storm names. The destruction and loss of life was enormous. Damage to boats and homes due to the high winds and flooding was devastating. The erosion from Carol left part of the Wianno Club’s dining room hanging over the edge of the bluff. With more advanced warning, many people left Cape Cod to escape the brunt of the storm. In the end, almost one-third of New England lost power. But nothing compares to the Great Atlantic Hurricane of 1944. It was a time of crisis in the midst of World War II, and this storm was the last thing needed on the home front. The storm made landfall on the Cape at night and winds were clocked around Cape Cod at over 100 mph. Radios and newspapers gave early warnings, but they were nothing like the computer tracking models of today. Weathering the Storm cont’d
  19. 19. Storm Warning cont’d When the hurricane hit Cape Cod in September of 1944, it destroyed the Dowse Mansion once located on the present-day Dowse’s Beach. The main house was lifted off of the foundation and floated out into East Bay. The only surviving item from the house — a piano forte — is in the permanent collection of the Osterville Historical Museum. The family decided not to rebuild, and the Town of Barnstable paid $30,000 for the property and renovations to create a bathing beach for all town residents. Over 60 feet of coast was stripped away from the Wianno Beach and hundreds of trees were lost in the pine groves along the boardwalks parallel to the ocean. The major difference in 1944 was the clean-up crew consisted of German POWs being held at nearby Camp Edwards. The trees of the Wianno Grove initially took a big hit during the hurricane of 1938. At that time, the Wianno Club’s bathing pavilions and piers were destroyed as well. At very low tides, you can still see the remnants of those piers destroyed in the hurricane of 1938. STORMWARNING 20 A Dowse’s Beach (above) scene prior to the Hurricane of 1944. Hurricane Bob approaches Cape Cod, August 19, 1991
  20. 20. 21 STORMWARNING www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org In September of 1944, the Wianno Club began the sale of “Hurricane Notes” to pay for emergency enhancements to protect the entire Osterville shoreline. The town of Barnstable pledged to cover 15% of the repair costs, while the state covered 50% of the bill. At the Crosby Yacht Building & Storage Co., Wilton B. Crosby reported good news to a few lucky customers whose boats were stored inside. These boats — including Mrs. Bridge’s Wianno Senior The Mistral — floated as the storm surge hit. Despite a 12-foot above normal flood tide, when the water receded, “the boats in most cases set upright on their keels.” The only expense? Getting the boats back to their spaces and blocked up again. Storage costs back then? $5 per month for a Wianno Senior. A very small price to pay, indeed. Weather experts say that Cape Cod is long overdue for a direct hit by a major hurricane.The fear is that the weather patterns of today are very similar to the 1930s-1960s — years that produced devastating storms. With a higher year-round population and increased building along the coastline, damages could be hefty. Although these hurricanes have forever changed the Cape Cod coastline and the landscape, they have not hindered the spirit of those who flock to the seaside year after year. A 12-foot tidal surge flooded the area (seen above) following the destructive winds of the 1944 storm. The main house on the Dowse property was lifted off of the foundation and floated into East Bay. – Jennifer Williams
  21. 21. The Librarians Tell All From Duck Soup to Crime & Punishment Ever wonder what it’s like to keep a library running smoothly? The best way to find out is through the eyes of the team that greases the wheels at the Osterville Village Library every day. Library staffers Mike Crocker, John LeRoy, Tory Fiske, Cathy Molle, and Ethan Pulsifer all responded to our questions. Bright and early on a typical Saturday morning a woman entrusted a box of Marx Brothers “Duck Soup” DVDs to the the Reference Librarian, and said, “For that guy who likes them. You know. Him?” An older man came in for a tutorial on computer formatting a book manuscript. A young woman needed help in pulling a college application off the web. This is downstairs, where Mike Crocker offers technical help, and much more. No matter what the request, patrons get service with a smile. Upstairs, it’s more of the same. One librarian is fielding telephone inquiries about restaurants and lodging, while another checks out books. Then, a woman comes in seeking clues on locating a long-lost friend who used to live in the area. A teen inquires about museum passes. During a lull in the action, we ask our questions. Most interesting request? “I think the most amazing thing is the guy who had Mike find and print him out pictures of a King Eider (bird). He said he was going to carve it and would bring it back. A month later he came back with this incredible carving. We put his carving on display in our showcase and he did a talk about how he got started carving.” Your quirkiest request? “The parrot. A guy was looking for a very rare breed of parrot. He wanted to know the life-span, the feasibility of owning on the Cape, permits, etc., for owning one. Turns out it was not possible. I think he got a cat instead.” How is the library impacted by the various Village festivals? “It’s lot busier throughout the day, especially Village Day and the Fall Festival. It’s great to see all the familiar faces getting into the spirit of things, whether it’s Halloween or the Christmas Stroll. It shows how important the library is to the community as a whole. cont’d 23 LIBRARIANSTELLALL www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org Librarian Mike Crocker (right) with bird carver George Ford.

The little ones’ faces light up when they see her.” Favorite patron? Everyone has a favorite — so many wonderful people come through the doors for so many different things. “It’s really beautiful… A lot of people will come by; I know certain people who come by on a certain day of the week always. I know my Tuesday people or my Monday afternoon people. I have a certain kid that comes in every Saturday. He makes sure to stop at my desk and he talks to me for at least ten minutes about whatever history thing he’s interested in that week, and I help him find those books. It’s interesting to see how integral into people’s daily routines the library is.” What is your favorite book? “Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Don’t dismiss a classic. When you actually get into it, the book reads like a daytime soap opera, even like a Mexican telenovela. Try it. You can get a copy right here.” What is it that you enjoy most about sitting behind the front desk? “Seeing people use the facility in so many ways. They come to to take out books, magazines, DVDs, make photocopies. They sit and relax by thumbing through newspapers and magazines in the fireside room. They also play cards, the kids play Legos, and assemble puzzles. The Sandwich couple who park their boat in a marina up the street, come in to get cool, and sit beside the gal who comes in to read the paper because she can’t afford her own.” cont’d The Librarians Tell All cont’d L-R: Mary, Mike, Jillian, Cathy, Ethan, Stephen, and Tory Regina Silvia 25

It is a good feeling to be able to help people do important things that they would not be able to without my help, mainly involving technology.” “This is a great place to work and learn. We have some very smart, talented staff members who bring energy and enthusiasm to their jobs. This is a great learning and fun work environment. It’s rare to find in a small organization.” Over the years, Osterville’s library has morphed into the community center of the village. “People will go to Fancy’s, go to the post office, come to the library, spend the day here. Or even they’ll come at the end of the day, toward closing, if they’ve come from work just to come here, relax, use the computer, sit in the reading room, read the newspaper. It is amazing to see how this library is just so important to the village.” 27 LIBRARIANSTELLALL www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org The Librarians Tell All cont’d

  29. 29. 31 HANSENBROTHERS www.OstervilleVillageLibrary.org cont’d The Hansen Brothers Peter and David Hansen are carrying on their family’s eighty-two year tradition of business ownership in Osterville. Their grandfather, who owned the Sunoco station in Osterville, moved here with his young family in 1936. Their father Warren, with his wife Barbara, owned Hansen Office Supply, which started as a one-man operation and flourished for decades, employing as many as 25 to 30 people. Both Peter and David honed their business skills in the family business before launching their own enterprises. Each brother combined his early business training with his own unique artistic talents and passions in 1989, when their parents retired. For Peter, that talent and passion was landscape design. After a high school summer job at Lew/Mac Landscaping (Walter Lewis and Philip Macalister), Peter studied environmental design at the University of Colorado, plant science at Stockbridge and the Arnold Arboretum, and business at the Isenberg Business School at UMass, where he got his degree. Peter’s firm, Peter Hansen Design, offers complete landscape project development from the initial stage of conception, through the permitting process to design and construction. They work with local professionals including engineers, architects, site contractors, builders, realtors, pool companies, masons, and landscape contractors to oversee all aspects of the project from start to finish.

  30. 30. HANSENBROTHERS 32 Hansen Brothers cont’d Inspired by American landscape architect Fredrick Law Olmstead, a Peter Hansen landscape will stop you in your tracks as you admire the understated elegance and the beauty of its New England simplicity. Peter did not have to look far for that inspiration. Olmstead, famously known for designing the Emerald Necklace in Boston, also created many private residential landscapes. Two of these are local — one in Centerville and another on South County Road in Osterville. Peter says the trend today in yard landscaping is for pools, fire pits, and privacy screening, outdoor lighting, and reduced usage of water and fertilizer. Also, older homes often need a complete landscape renovation. Some of the mature shrubs can often be relocated on the property and new ones brought in to better enhance the architecture of the house. Whatever the project, his goal is always the same: to protect and enhance the charm of Osterville’s unique coastal environment. David, an avid amateur photographer during his college days at the University of Denver, operated the photo lab at his parents’ business, where he met other photographers when they came to the photo lab. One local professional noticed David’s work, and asked him if he would shoot a wedding. David did the wedding successfully and word-of- mouth led to more professional opportunities, including working for a Boston-area financial services company. For years, he traveled with the company for several weeks each winter, documenting their incentive trips in tropical destinations like Hawaii, Aruba and Cabo San Lucas. In Memoriam Barbara Hansen We lost our friend, neighbor and the matriarch of the Hansen family on February 4, 2018. Her contributions as an Osterville Village Library volunteer and board member were immeasurable. She was a lifelong member of the Friends group, member of the knitters group, organizer of the Christmas tea and at the forefront of developing and managing the Friends Book Store. Her energy and expertise on the board at a critical time in the library’s history — during the planning and execution of our current “new” building — were invaluable. But most of all she was a friend, with boundless energy, and generosity of spirit. She will be missed.
  31. 31. During those years working in the family business and moonlighting as a photographer, he joined the Professional Photographers of Cape Cod and New England. He took courses and attended seminars to perfect his craft. When his parents retired, David launched Hansen Photography. The studio focuses on portraiture, including engagements, weddings, newborns, and multi-generational family portrait albums. One of the joys of the business for David is getting to know families that he has photographed annually for as many as 20 years. In the digital age, training is continuous, as improvements in the software for editing photos is constant. But perhaps the key to success for David is, like Peter, that his deep Osterville roots serve him well. David can offer his clients an insider’s knowledge of the most beautiful wedding venues and portrait settings the village has to offer. His world- class studio with a very local focus now includes David’s daughters, Amy and Katey. Osterville’s fourth generation of Hansens are continuing a picture perfect family legacy of Osterville entrepeneurship well into the 21st century.
