The city was first founded in 1636 and named after Barnstable, Devon, England, and was incorporated in 1639. Initially, the city was settled by farmers, due to its fertile soil, but later on fishermen and businessmen came to the city as well. Salt companies were common, and during the 19th century the city became known as one of the best tourist destinations in New England. Today, there are plenty of places to spend money in the shopping district of Hyannis, and several presidents, including the prestigious Kennedy family, have their summer homes in Hyannis.
The city lies in a mix between a humid continental climate and a humid subtropical climate, a situation that is normal throughout New England.
