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.

The Wellfleet Resort You Can’t Stay At

There are a lot of great places to stay on Cape Cod, but there’s one legendary resort in Wellfleet you can’t stay at or even see. That’s because the resort is mostly just memories these days. The old Chequesset Inn was once one of the grandest resorts on the Outer Cape. A wealthy fruit company owner built the hotel on Mercantile Wharf in the 1880s.

The South End’s New York Streets Neighborhood

Photo: City of Boston Archives Once a diverse Boston neighborhood, it’s said the South End’s New York Streets neighborhood was really the city’s very first urban renewal project.

What some refer to as urban redevelopment, others now claim was actually just the destruction of an entire neighborhood. The story of New York Streets began in the early to m... Read More

The Story of Point Gammon Lighthouse

That’s why, for most, the ultra-private island and its famed lighthouse remain a bit of a mystery. However, if you go back in history, that wasn’t always the case. The Point Gammon Lighthouse dates b... Read More

Iconic Cape Historic Landmarks

While Cape Cod is well known for its boating and its beaches, there’s also plenty of history. Some of that history is obvious, while some is a bit more discreet.  The Columns Restaurant It’s pretty hard to miss the old Columns Restaurant in West Dennis. The stately white building sits right along Route 28, just as it has for around 150 years. Originally a sea captain’s home, the old home was later turned into a popular restaurant and club. It once brought in some of Cape Cod’s hotte... Read More

Things You Might Not Know About Yarmouth

Photo: Bud Ellison Home to three major villages today, the Town of Yarmouth offers beaches, golf courses and parks. It also offers plenty of history, and it’s likely there are a few things you may not know about Yarmouth.
