6 Atwood Avenue

Garden at 6 Atwood Avenue

The O’Donnell family were longtime residents of this house (c1850), set off Atwood Avenue by an expansive front lawn. Listed here in 1940 were John O’Donnell and Richard O’Donnell, both fishermen. Marian O’Donnell later ran it as O’Donnell’s Guest House, cited in the 1992 Complete Guide to Provincetown as a “beautifully kept” accommodation in an “exquisite setting.” Winifred Terrat and George Terrat acquired the property that year and renamed it — appropriately — as the Garden at 6 Atwood Avenue.

  1. Six Atwood is where my Mother grew up with her siblings. I also have a house on Nickerson Street in which my great-grandmother lived — absolutely lovely little cottage — years ago. I could take you around the West End and give you a lot of info.
