Wareham Gatemen

Wareham, Mass.

Wareham is located on Buzzards Bay and is situated just west of the Cape Cod Canal. It has approximately 20,000 year-round residents and sees its population swell to more than 46,000 during the summer months. Wareham is comprised of the villages of Wareham, East Wareham, West Wareham and Onset. The area’s early industries were ship building, whaling and most notably manufacturing. Because of iron ore rich swamplands, Tremont Nail Company began the manufacture of nails beginning in 1822. Over the decades, Wareham has seen its industry shift from manufacturing of products to the growing of cranberries. Recreation and tourism also play a vital role in Wareham’s present day economy. Boating, fishing, shell fishing, golf and of course the area beaches attract many families during the summer months. Small shops as well as chain department stores and restaurants can be found along main street and in designated commercial areas. Wareham is also very lucky to have Tobey Hospital, part of the Southcoast Health family, located in downtown just minutes away from Spillane Field.
