Atwood 06

(April 2011)

Garden at 6 Atwood Avenue.

The O’Donnell family were longtime residents of this house (c 1850), set off Atwood Avenue by an expansive front lawn. Listed here in 1940 were John O’Donnell and Richard O’Donnell, both fishermen. Marian O’Donnell later ran it as O’Donnell’s Guest House, cited in the 1992 Complete Guide to Provincetown as a “beautifully kept” accommodation in an “exquisite setting.” Winifred Terrat and George Terrat acquired the property that year and renamed it — appropriately — as the Garden at 6 Atwood Avenue.
