31 Atkins-Mayo Road

Built in 1946 for Salvatore Del Deo and Josephine (Couch) Del Deo. Mrs. Del Deo was arguably the most important individual in the last half of the 20th century in the effort to preserve and pass on Provincetown’s heritage, cultural traditions and artistic patrimony. Among other achievements, she was a founder of the Provincetown Heritage Museum.

The couple’s legacy includes the Josephine and Salvatore Del Deo Collection Relating to Provincetown Artists, housed at the Smithsonian’s Archive of American Arts.
