2020 Commercial 111 Burch's Wharf 1910

(Circa 1910)

111 Commercial Street.

The 200-foot-long Burch Wharf was used to store nets and fishing gear, Irving S. Rogers wrote in his 1941 thumbnail history, and — overshadowed by the Brooks and Freeman wharves flanking it — “assumed a minor role in the busy scene.” Nonetheless, its structural profile has not greatly changed since the 1880s, even if its structural members have, so it seems fair to place it in that rare category of Provincetown wharves: extant.
