I never forget this Town Hall.. It was beautiful.. That where Jennifer Holiday (original Dreamgirl) she performed there and torn up the concert .. Everybody was clapped and shouted out . She belt out the song " I am not telling I am not going" . Great time.. That was in September, 1998 on Labor Day weekend.

Beautiful old architecture in Provincetown's main street. There are few interesting attractions in this very tacky and comercial street, one is the library and the other one is the town hall. Stop and take a look.

It was business as usual for the town workers. There is some beautiful artwork that tells the history of the area. Highly recommend you stop there.

My mom and I went to research my great-grandmother's birth. We were very pleased with the help we got here, and ended up finding what we were looking for! It was also a pleasure to visit this old building.

As you stroll down Commercial Street in Provincetown, take a moment to peek inside Town Hall for a throw back to days of the Town Hall. In no way glittery, this Hall is a monument to this place that is America's First Destination, where the Pilgrims first landed in Provincetown Harbor and inked the Mayflower Compact, the DNA for American...

Everyone was really nice. Building has a lot of history. They even allow you to bring your dogs inside.

This is a town hall! If you are visiting provincetown, you can use the bathrooms here, stare at the auditorium and admire its history for five minutes, walk around and look at the art for ten. There really isn't much more to it.

Town Hall, located smack in the middle of town, represents small town USA in its absolute. It is truly the heart of town activity. The original town hall was built in the mid 19th century where the monument is located. After the first hall burned down the new town hall was built in the present location in 1886. The recent...
