Old Harbor Life Saving Station
Cape Cod National Seashore Park
is also home to the Old Harbor Life Saving Station, one of the original 13 life saving stations on Cape Cod. These ocean-front buildings were equipped to launch a rescue into the surf to pull survivors from sailing ships that had landed on the sand bars 1,000 feet off shore.
It is open to visitors and is the only life saving station where life saving history is preserved. A breeches buoy rescue is reenacted by Park Rangers every Thursday evening at 6:00 pm during the summer season.
