DescriptionEastham was settled in 1644 by Plymouth colonists. First Encounter Beach was the spot where Miles Standish and other Mayflower forefathers landed during their expedition from Provincetown. Naturalist Henry Beston, enchanted by the area's beauty in 1927, wrote “The Outermost House,” a passionate novel about the winds, tides and wildlife of the beach.
