Municipal

Overview

The Municipal Collection contains a sampling of historic material on file in the Town Clerk's Office and represents a wide range of subjects dealing with Provincetown that has been collected over the years, much of which was uncovered during a reorganization of the basement storage area in Town Hall in 2007.  A complete index of the Municipal Collection is available to review in the Town Clerk's Office.
