Provincetown History Snippets: What was The Beach Point Club?
Cottage communities are synonymous with Cape living, and right at the edge of Provincetown is the Beach Point Club, previously known as the Harbor Lights Village. It’s hybrid: some standalone cottages, some attached units, and in the back (toward the bay) an old motel refashioned into condos.
In September of 1957, Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Todd stayed at Harbor Lights in Cottage 12 as guests of Thomas and May O’Donnell. Todd died six months later when his private plane crashed; theirs was the only one of Taylor’s marriages that didn’t end in divorce.
