(Undated)

Provincetown Inn (Original inn).

Based on this undated postcard, published by the Provincetown Inn and now in the collection of the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, I believe the original inn building served only as a restaurant, lot as a lodging. I also believe the ur-structure still exists, but that it has since been subsumed by additions and expansions; its only visible evidence today being the chimney shown in the card. That might explain the discrepancy between the opening date, given as 1915 by Clive Driver in Looking Back, and as 1925 by the Provincetown Inn website, which refers to that as the year when “a new luxurious hotel opened its doors for the first time.”

For an overview of the Provincetown Inn, please see 1 Commercial Street.
