This utterly charming full Cape from the early 19th century was the home for some years of Benjamin Atwood and his wife, Lois (Nelson) Atwood. Atwood was born in Provincetown. He spent his youth at sea but his adulthood as an accountant in Boston, retiring here in the early 1920s. Not long after the Atwoods’ deaths, John Agna opened a real estate office here, which was maintained at least through the mid-1970s.
