North Beach Camp

The North Beach Camp or Nickerson Camp. A simple camp that was used by the Joshua Nickerson family as a summer cottage. It was located on the area in Chatham known as North Beach, a long point extending from Orleans to Chatham that was for many years a favorite place to get away from one's daily life and live more simply. When erosion threatened the camp, it was floated across the water in the spring of 1991, and given to the Museum by the son of Joshua Nickerson.
