Building Provincetown presents Provincetown’s rich social and cultural history through its built environment, doubling as an architectural guide arranged street by street, in alphabetical order. This website is under construction. (Provincetown Magazine published a terrific profile, by Steve Desroches, in 2013.)
A book is coming in the latter half of 2014. You can follow its progress on Building Provincetown, The Book.
A great way to visit this site is to Browse by Street. You can also search for names, words and buildings in the search box above. (It also appears at the bottom of every entry.) Notices of the latest entries are posted regularly on Facebook. The Cape Cod National Seashore has its own section in the Cs. A dagger ( † ) at an entry means the structure no longer stands.
It’s not possible to contact everyone whose properties I’m describing, so I rely on public records and on data that are already on the web. I understand that some residents may not wish certain details to appear here, and I will gladly accommodate requests to delete personal information.
