The Town has contracted with Official Payments, a leading provider of electronic payment solutions to offer payment processing over the internet.

During your stay in Chatham, we'd like to draw your attention to a few local and regional landmarks or points of interest. They've been selected by local residents and we hope that they will not only be memorable, but perhaps even touch your heart. Some of these destinations may be simply a pleasant morning or afternoon diversion; others are unique to our area and/or played a role in our Nation's history. So whether you are staying for a few hours or a few weeks, we hope that you can find the time to enjoy these various points of interest.

To aid in planning, we've broken these down by driving distances: "local", within 1 hour and between 1 and 2 hours. Despite Chatham's rural ambience, the range beyond 2 hours' drive not only begins to encompass a huge geographical area, but includes several metropolitan areas. That region contains numerous opportunities to explore, but it's beyond the scope of this website to present a meaningful guide to those areas..
