There is a Ben and Jerry's next door to the hall, and the hall has clean/free rest rooms. Across the street from the hall is a fudge shop which... More

Go in! Paintings by the Ptown notables on the walls and in the offices, staff are very welcoming. Fishing and harpooning artifacts on display and the second floor has the huge auditorium where the Halloween party is held.

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...
