About Provincetown, MA
Provincetown is the last community located at the tip of Cape Cod. Although Provincetown was not founded until 1727, Bartholomew Gosnold arrived in Provincetown Harbor from Maine in 1602. The Mayflower docked for the first time in the Provincetown harbor in 1620 and is the official first landing of the pilgrims.

Over the years during the 18th century, the town's population fluctuated along with the price of fish. Aside from fishing there was farming which was the next most important thing and there were some salt works and one mill.

A wealth of art and preserved momentous buildings combined with the lure of the sea help Provincetown to maintain a vast tourist and summer home industry. Provincetown offers history, shopping, great restaurants and the smells and sounds of the ocean from all directions.
