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 is a residential community that includes marshes, bays, ponds, a small lake, beaches, and a small business district.HistoryOsterville 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.AboutOsterville's business district includes a public library, gift stores, women's fashions, restaurants, a small market, banks with ATMs, a pizza place, package store, a U.S. Post Office, a hardware store, art galleries, barber and beauty shops, and real estate brokers.During July and August, Osterville's population swells due to seasonal residents. Many summer residents maintain a second house in Osterville while residing most of the year in the Greater Boston area. The village is known for its oceanfront estates.The cemetery for the village of Osterville is the Hillside Cemetery on Old Mill Road.Armstrong-Kelley Park, the oldest and largest privately owned park on Cape Cod, is located in Osterville.
