Provincetown History Snippets: What Iconic Provincetown Inn is For Sale?
One of Ptown’s iconic inns is for sale! For more than four decades, this Second-Empire style house has served the needs of Ptown visitors, starting out as the Casa Vistosa in the 1950s. Architect and historian David Dunlap has said it has “one of the best mansard roofs in town,” and its stone wall was constructed from ballast from sailing ships. The octagonal pavilion, which is part of the inn, has been the site of a myriad of small businesses.
In 1968 the inn was renamed and its owners became major players in promoting Ptown as a gay resort. So… want to own a piece of vibrant history? Now’s your chance!
