Hyannis, MA Real Estate Listings & Homes for Sale



Hyannis is the largest village of Barnstable, which was incorporated by settlers in 1639, most of whom were farmers. The first permanent residence in Hyannis was built in 1690 by Edward Coleman, Jr. at the head of Lewis Bay. By 1840, Hyannis was home to over 200 shipmasters, earning it the nickname, “the Port.” Hyannis also relied upon the salt works industry to support its economy. The village has also been a residence of members of the Kennedy family since 1928, when Joseph P. Kennedy purchased the Malcolm Cottage.


Hyannis, located in the Mid- Cape area, sits on the Cape’s south side with shores touching Nantucket Sound. Near the coast, Hyannis is dissected by numerous small bodies of water, including Snows Creek. Hyannis Inner Harbor rests at the northwestern edge of Lewis Bay and is the location of the Steamship
Authority. The larger Hyannis Harbor sits southwest of Lewis Bay and opens to Nantucket Sound. Hyannis Port overlooks Nantucket Sound at Hyannis’ southwestern edge and is the location of the Kennedy Compound.


Hyannis is known as the un-official “Capital of the Cape,” due to its status as the commercial
and transportation hub for Cape Cod and the fact that the 1990 census designated Hyannis as an urban area. The village has two of the Cape’s major shopping centers: the Cape Cod Mall and downtown Main Street. It is also home to Cape Cod Hospital, the Cape’s largest medical facility. Hyannis Harbor makes Hyannis the largest recreational boating port on the Cape, and the second largest commercial fishing port.


Cape Cod’s largest high school, Barnstable High School, is located in the village of Hyannis and serves students in grades eight through 12, with about 2,400 students. Sturgis Charter Public School maintains
two nearby campuses, Sturgis West and Sturgis East in Hyannis, and serves students in grades nine through 12. Pope John Paul II High School is the only college preparatory Catholic high school on the Cape. Trinity Christian Academy and Saint Francis Xavier Preparatory School are also located in Hyannis.


The Town of Barnstable established the HyArts District in Hyannis to promote the arts community by creating a regional center for creative and performing arts. During the summer, local artists sell their wares at shanties at Hyannis Harbor. The town has also installed various public art pieces along the waterfront and downtown Hyannis, called the Walkway to the Sea. A performing arts program stages its productions at Aselton Park on Hyannis Harbor. The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum celebrates the legacy of President Kennedy and his relationship with Cape Cod. The Cape Cod Melody Tent, a theater-in-the-round, offers a diverse seasonal program.
