DescriptionApproximately at the geographic center of Cape Cod on SR 6A, Brewster is the setting of stately early 19th-century homes built by the sea captains who dominated the town's initial economy. The city offers antique shops, art galleries and museums that lure summer visitors to Cape Cod Bay. The Old Gristmill on Stoney Brook Road is one of the country's first gristmills.
