On the wild back shore of Provincetown, Massachusetts, writers, artists, and families made summer homes in the early 1900s. Affectionately called the dune shacks, some were originally life-saving huts constructed in the late 1890’s but most were built in the 1920s and 1930s out of debris and ship wrecked ruins.

A cluster of these original shacks exist today — some restored, some bandaged, some dilapidated — all loved. Each shack is unique with its own personality and its own name.
