Admittedly, my enthusiasm for vernacular architecture can get the better of me, but I love the ice storage building of Lower Cape Ice. Its sleek lines and acute angles remind me of nothing so much as a composition out of Ed Ruscha’s Standard series. The refrigeration and air-conditioning company was founded by Shane R. Burhoe in 1996. More pictures and history»

It’s a funny thing about government-sponsored affordable housing projects. They are seldom popular when begun. But eventually — for want of many alternatives, among other reasons — they wind up with long waiting lists. Maushope, named for a guardian deity of the Wampanoag people, is a 24-unit group residence for people 60 and older and for the disabled, whose rent is typically capped at 30 percent of their incomes.

Outer Cape Health Services Provincetown Health Center

When the nearest hospital is one hour away, a primary- and urgent-care facility like the Provincetown Health Center takes on extraordinary importance. Though Outer Cape Health Services is now affiliated with the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, its history can be traced — in the person of Patti Cozzi, R.N., among others — to the Provincetown Drop-In Center at 6 Gosnold Street.

Don’t mistake the modesty of this building: 90 Harry Kemp Way is actually a powerhouse, as the home of the second generation of what amounts to the town’s establishment law firm. Christopher J. Snow (b 1951), a Provincetown native with a J.D. from Suffolk University, now runs the practice established by his father, John C. Snow (1920-1985). More history»

As the only such business in town any longer, Gately McHoul may be said to be the Great Leveler’s great leveler, since just about everyone passes through on their way to their final resting place, from Provincetown’s humblest citizen to its best-known resident (Norman Mailer). The business was established in 1985 by David A. McHoul (1942-2005), pictured at right, a Boston native and Vietnam veteran who had spent 20 running an embalming service with his brother. After he died at 63 of complications from Lyme’s disease, the funeral home was taken over by William J. Gately, who summarized the advantages of a local operation on the Gately McHoul Web site: More history»
