5 Priscilla Alden Road

5 Priscilla Alden Road, Provincetown (2012), by David W. Dunlap.Add this to the many mysteries of Provincetown, where nothing ever disappears entirely: an old sign for the Meadows Motel and Cottages, 122 Bradford Street Extension, “Fully Equipped,” could be spotted here in recent years, affixed to a picturesque little shack. Compounding the mystery is the fact that the town doesn’t even know who owns this property. • MapAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-08-04

No picture yet.Another direct descendant of Hawthorne, through Hensche, the artist Constance J. “Connie” Black (b 1929) bought this property in 1953 with her husband, Carl B. Black (b 1927). In a review of her one-woman show at the Provincetown Group Gallery in 1966, The Provincetown Advocate said: “As the inveterate opening night crowd flowed through the gallery, and as they learned that this was one winter’s output, reactions ran the gamut from Aaah! through Man!! to Zowie!!!” A brief profile of Black appears on Ewa Nogiec’s Provincetown Artist Registry. She was also active in an effort in the early 1950s to revive Provincetown’s little theater tradition in a group known as the Pilgrim Players. • MapAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-08-04
