Located off of Main Street just outside of the business district. It includes the town beach and is the site of the town band concerts.

Great place to watch the comings and goings of a busy harbor. Several sailboats and beautiful schooners are moored in this harbor. The ferry from Woods Hole docks there. Great place for a picnic and ferry watching.

Old Schoolhouse/MV Seafaring Center and Old Seamen’s Bethel

Located on Main Street just outside of the business district, just before Owen Park. Built in 1828 as a schoolhouse. It was formerly the Daughters of the American Revolution building and Museum. There is a ship’s mast in front of the building that has a history all it’s own. Check out the Legend of the Liberty Pole. Now it houses the Seamen’s Bethel and the Bethel Maritime Collection. The building, however, is not opened to the public.
