Heritage Artifacts Collection
An inventory of the physical artifacts from the old Heritage Museum. Accompanying each photographed artifact is the description of the artifact highlighted in yellow from the original Heritage Museum inventory sheets. The goal of the Provincetown History Project to display these artifacts throughout Town-owned buildings remains an ongoing process.
