Harwich provides a unique focus on how this one small coastal New England town coped with problems of national magnitude, such as industrialization and immigration. Men such as Caleb Chase, who used part of the fortune he made in Chase and Sanborn's coffee trade to finance road construction that attracted vacationers, were not always heroes to neighbors now working in the splendid hotels that accommodated these visitors.
