The History of the Davenport Companies

In the beginning it was simple. In April, 1956, a father and son cut a road in the quiet town of Dennis on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This was the start of the residential neighborhood that would become known as Wrinkle Point.
Today, few people would describe the portfolio of Davenport businesses as simple. The company is now a fourth-generation, family-owned business that is successful and diversified. The Davenport Companies now employs over 200 people at more than a dozen companies throughout New England, including commercial and residential real estate, assisted living, construction, and a variety of service businesses.
The team members of The Davenport Companies are at the heart of the company's success. At the root of today's family of companies are the same principles that guided Davenport back in 1956: hard work, perseverance, integrity, loyalty and respect for each other as well as the communities the companies serve.
No matter the opportunities we pursue, as we move into the future our singular focus will remain on ensuring the highest level of customer satisfaction and superb service that distinguishes our current companies:
