Wareham is a small New England town in Plymouth County. Based on the mainland of Massachusetts, tourists and visitors pass through Wareham on their way onto Cape Cod. But this town isn’t just the last stop before crossing the canal. Their motto is, “It’s Better Before the Bridges”.
This small Massachusetts town thrives off of the water running through and around it. From Buzzards Bay, multiple beaches and wharves, Marion is known for fishing, recreational sailing, and boating. This quintessential New England town is filled with history and beautiful Cape Cod style homes.
Bourne, Massachusetts was first settled in 1640 and today it is a bustling town and a beautiful place to visit. As the westernmost land on the Cape Cod peninsula, it is the first town that tourists pass through when visiting the cape. There are three grand bridges that cross over the Cape Cod Canal from the mainland Massachusetts onto the cape. The Bourne and Sagamore bridges allow the passage of cars and pedestrians, while the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge serves year round to the Massachusetts Coastal Railroad. Bourne sits on both sides of the Cape Cod Canal, which has a rich history of its own. Occasionally whales and dolphins can be seen in the waters.
The town of Bourne is home to the Aptucxet Trading Post, the oldest store establishment in the country. It was founded in 1627 by the Pilgrims who settled the area. This store was originally set up for the purposes of trading with the native Wampanoag tribe. Today, there stands a replica of the trading post. It acts as a museum to teach the history of Bourne’s earliest settlers and the people who lived there before.
Some other destinations worth visiting are the Pairpont Glass Works and the Massachusetts National Cemetery. Bourne is also home to the National Marine Life Center. This non-profit organization offers rehabilitation, treatment, and release of stranded sea turtles and seals. In the future, the Center plans to expand treatment to dolphins and whales.
In Bourne there is so much to do and see. Walking, biking, fishing, and boating are all popular activities to do in and around the Cape Cod Canal and Buzzards Bay. Have a picnic and spend a day in the park, taking in all of the Massachusetts beauty. Bourne is also home to a town forest, coves, harbors, and beaches.
Visitors to Bourne can enjoy a mix of stunning scenery and New England history. People who call Bourne home have access to businesses, schools, and all of the amenities for daily living. This Massachusetts town is a lovely place to live or visit and at Gade Masonry & Landscape, we proudly serve Bourne.

How long will a brick retaining wall last?
A well built brick wall can reasonably be expected to last for around one hundred years. This means that a retaining wall that is well built and well maintained will outlive us! However it is important to note that brick needs to be occasionally cleaned. Damaged brick should be repaired or replaced to encourage the longevity of the wall. Our masonry projects are built to last, allowing you to enjoy them for years to come.
