Entering Osterville

Osterville is one of seven villages within the town of Barnstable, Massachusetts, USA. The village of Osterville is located on the south side of Barnstable on Nantucket Sound. Osterville was originally named Cotacheset, based on the native American name for the area. Over time it became a center for "oystering" (harvesting wild oysters) and was renamed Oysterville. Later a map misspelled the name as Osterville and the village became so.
