The history of Provincetown
In 1620, the Pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower and made their first landing in the New World in Provincetown Harbor. The Pilgrims stayed in Provincetown for five weeks, where they created and signed the Mayflower Compact. They then continued on to their ultimate destination of Plymouth, Massachusetts. After the Revolution, Provincetown boomed and its population rose 2776.6% between 1790 and 1830. By the middle of the 19th century, Provincetown had developed as the prime maritime, fishing, and commercial center of Cape Cod. Provincetown’s celebrated reputation as the nation’s oldest art colony began when painter Charles Webster Hawthorne arrived in Provincetown in 1899. Shortly thereafter, he founded the Cape Cod School of Art, where he taught painting for the following 30 summers.
