About Yarmouth, MA
2010 Population: 23,793
Yarmouth, incorporated in 1639, is located in the Mid-Cape area, about 23 miles
east of the Cape Cod Canal. Yarmouth is one of the towns that extend from Cape Cod Bay on the north across the peninsula south to Nantucket Sound and covers seventeen square miles.
The most striking physical features of Yarmouth are the result of glaciation; the low round hills on the north side of Yarmouth were created by the leading edge of the glacier
as it pushed the land before it. The flat sandy terrain of the southern part of Yarmouth is the apron of material that was washed out from the glacial ice.
is made up of three villages; South Yarmouth, West Yarmouth and Yarmouth Port. There are three libraries, one in each village. Yarmouth boast fifteen
of Cape Cod’s finest fresh and saltwater beaches to laze away the days, four golf courses challenging all levels, many tennis courts for the more active,
and many hiking and conservation trails.
Keeping pace with the growth on Cape Cod is the increase of professional and community music, art, dance and theater
groups. The Yarmouth Cultural Center of Cape Cod opened in February, 2007 and will continue to foster "All the Arts for All of Us" by offering a wide range of programs,
events and exhibitions.
