Once owned by the New Haven Railroad, this was the home of the stationmaster, A. E. Slade. It served as the first, ramshackle Fine Arts Work Center from 1969 to 1972, before the center moved to 24 Pearl. Tenants have included the Cheshire Cats clothing boutique; the restaurants Meetinghouse, Cape Inn, Different Ducks, and Tropical Joe’s, where the Kinsey Sicks played; the Cyber Cove and Mail Spot Express business centers; Neal Kimball of Kimball Residential Design, who bought and restored the original section of the building in 2006; and, currently, Dr. Scott Allegretti’s Provincetown Dental Arts.


More than 2,000 buildings and vessels are searchable on buildingprovincetown.com. The Building Provincetown book is available for purchase ($20) at Town Hall, Office of the Town Clerk, 260 Commercial Street, Provincetown 02657.
