The village of Hatchville on Cape Cod boasts a rich history that began in 1740 with the first Hatch settler. Join author Les Garrick on a journey from the founding of Hatchville to the rise of the cranberry, poultry and dairy industries. Against all odds, the village has preserved this heritage, and today Hatchville remains horse and farm country. In 1915, Charles R. Crane purchased fourteen thousand acres of land, which his family turned into the Coonamessett Ranch Company, a model farm for locals that later turned into a resort. In 1986, dedicated individuals formed a land trust to preserve the remaining wildness of historic Hatchville, while local neighbors held the line against development. Uncover the stories of the land and the local heroes of historic Hatchville.
