Inscription. By looking at the present landscape, one can see into the past. Sagamore Hill is rich in cultural and natural history. What was once a Indian Council gathering place later became a World War II Coastal Military Installation. The land is now a mixture of field, forest, marsh, and swamp.

Come explore the features which comprise the story of Sagamore Hill. The trail to your left leads you to the summit of Sagamore Hill for a view of Cape Cod Bay and the Eastern section of Cape Cod Canal.
