Featuring Art and Design of Wellfleet’s Mid-Century Children’s Books
What is it about this narrow land that has for over 350 years attracted and nurtured so many creative and adventurous people? The Museum collection reveals many important clues: reminders of the social, cultural and economic milestones of Wellfleet’s diverse and fascinating history. The eclectic assemblage of artifacts in the permanent exhibits represents the unique character of Wellfleet’s history of whaling, fishing, oystering, farming, shipping (and wrecking), surf lifesaving, salt making, and the worldwide voyages of its residents.
