Cape Cod Gazetteer

I have been collecting place names and other gazetteer information for Cape Cod and Barnstable county for many years.

Here is a sampling of the letters A-B. http://www.searsr.com/CCGZ

It is interesting how many duplications there are. Were the folks just not very imaginative when it came to naming places or were they honoring the name by using it more than once.
There are four David Baker houses -
1) Upper County Rd, Dennis
2) 3118 Main St, Barnstable
3) Main St, Dennis
4) Bound Brook Island, Wellfleet

Francis Baker has a house in Brewster and one in Falmouth.

Just wait til I take a look at some of the ponds! How many Long Ponds are there on Cape Cod anyway?
