The Barnstable Village Cultural District is a must visit for any history and culture buff. It is home to some of the country’s most enduring landmarks, such as the Sturgis Library, which includes the house of the Reverend John Lothrop, the founder of Barnstable. Constructed in 1644, the house is considered the oldest library building in the US. 

Other significant historic buildings on the village’s Main Street include the Olde Colonial Courthouse, built in 1827, and Barnstable Comedy Club, the longest running comedy club in the country. The Olde Colonial Courthouse is home to the Tales of Cape Cod – a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and disseminating Cape Cod’s unique history through live and video presentations.

The village’s Main Street makes up a portion of Route 6A and is the scene of many community events, such as the Fourth of July parade, Halloween and Christmas festivities, and others. It also boasts charmingly quaint shops, restaurants, and historic museums, such as the Coast Guard Heritage Museum and the Old Jail.
