Wellfleet Tavern Site is a historic archeological site in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. It encompasses the remains of a late 17th century tavern operated by Samuel Smith, owner of Great Island, which shelters Wellfleet Harbor. The tavern site is located within the Cape Cod National Seashore, in Barnstable County.
The site was discovered because it was remembered through stories passed down.
