Town of Bourne

Bourne MA Railroad

Bourne is the first town you visit when driving to Cape Cod from 'off Cape' and is in the region known as the Upper Cape.  It is also unique among the 15 towns since, when the Cape Cod Canal was dug, Bourne was split into two parts separated by the new body of water.  This delightful town features a significant amount of waterfront on Buzzards Bay as well as Buttermilk Bay and is well known to fishermen throughout the area for excellent fishing.  Many distinct villages and delightful areas including Monument Beach, the Cape Cod Canal Bike Path, and Pocasset Town Forest bring people to Bourne as both a vacation destination and place to call home.
