518 Commercial Street

Hollyhock Cottage

This delightful little slice of gingerbread was the summer home for at least three decades — from the early 1930s through the early 1960s, if not longer — of Esther C. Townley. Her many civic activities in Provincetown included membership in the Women’s Guild of the Church of St. Mary of the Harbor, conveniently located across the street. The house, looking not too different from the way it did in 1940, has been owned since 1989 by Paul Andersen.
