10 Johnson Street

10 Johnson Street, Provincetown (2012), by David W. Dunlap.From the 1940s through the 1980s, this was a lodging house run by Adelaide (Wilkins) Kenney (b ±1906), known in earlier years as the Cook Homestead and in later years as Adelaide’s Guest House. There is a charming photograph of it in Volume I of John Hardy Wright’s Images of America: Provincetown, at page 81, completely recognizable 70 years ago as the building we see today — minus the “Rooms” and “Tourists” signs. Adelaide’s husband, William Edgar Kenney (±1892-1962), was the sexton of the Center Methodist Church for many years. This property was sold out of the Kenney estate in 2001. • Historic District SurveyAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-02-16
