Artists And Writers Used To Flock To This Tiny Massachusetts Town To Experience Its Remote Dune Shacks
Set in the sand dunes at the tip of Cape Cod are 19 shacks that dot the landscape. These dune shacks of Provincetown once served as part of a life-saving station beginning in 1882 for shipwreck survivors. Between the 1920s and 1950s, the shacks became havens for numerous artists and writers who came here to find solitude as they worked. Today, only 19 dune shacks remain and are still available for overnight guests.
