Cape Cod Antique Homes

With history dating back to 1620 when the Pilgrims first landed in Provincetown Harbor and visited Corn Hill, the Cape has had a colorful historic past.  Fishing and the seas sustained the Cape for its first 300 years until tourism exploded in the 20th century.  As the Cape has experienced extensive development in the last 50 years, we are truly fortunate that many of our historic districts and antique homes have remained intact and are now located in designated and protected districts.

One of the great exports from Cape Cod is the “Cape” architectural style that is now found throughout much of our country.  Many of the antique homes on Cape Cod feature true Cape styling that has now become so popular.
