Finding Historic Hatchville

In a July 6, 2014 review of Historic Hatchville, Melanie Lauwers wrote a too true statement:

"Many Cape Codders may not know where to find Hatchville on a map, but this area between Mashpee and East Falmouth has a rich history and amateur historian Les Garrick has discovered it for the rest of us."

I've often wondered why there is no publicly posted  "Welcome to Hatchville" sign on the major roads. So how would anyone know they are in Hatchville?  

If you are on Route 151 between the Cape Cod Fairgrounds and Route 28 (North Falmouth) or if you are on Sandwich Road between Brick Kiln Road and Route 151, YOU ARE IN HATCHVILLE

Likewise, if you are golfing  at the Cape Cod Country Club or Paul Harney Golf Club or walking the trails at Mass Audubon's Holly Sanctuary, the Frances A. Crane Wildlife Management Area or the Coonamessett Reservation, YOU ARE IN HATCHVILLE.
