Dennis Indian Lands

Indian Lands Conservation Area

Behind Town Office, Main St. South Dennis

The Indian Lands, on 25 acres of woodland and marshes, today offers visitors access to a place where the Nobscusset Indians passed the winter months in comfortable wigwams, on the shores of Bass River, which offered shelter from the north winds, good water from springs, and plentiful fish and shellfish. They continued to reside here as late as 1778.
In late spring, the Lady's Slipper Orchid can be seen in scattered patches beside the walking trail that circles the Indian Lands.
