The Cape Cod Modern House Trust invites you to an:
at the (Restored) HATCH COTTAGE
Sunday April 27, 11am – 4pm
The cottage is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Hatch Cottage was designed by Jack Hall in 1960 for Robert Hatch, an editor of The Nation and his wife Ruth, a painter. The family occupied the cottage until 2008 when ownership reverted to the National Park Service. The Cape Cod Modern House Trust received a lease in 2012 and finished restoration in spring 2013. Since then the cottage has hosted four artist/scholar residencies. All the original furniture and artwork has been re-installed by the Hatch family.
The project has been made possible by the generosity of our members, volunteers, discounted labor and materials from many local folks and most importantly the Community Preservation Act funds from the town and people of Wellfleet.
Free Transportation provided from Town Hall parking lot at 11am and 1pm. Please reserve a ride by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday.
If you plan to drive and are able-bodied please park at the Ryder Beach parking lot in Truro. It is a short walk south along the beach to the cottage. Look for the sign at the start of the path.
Bound Brook Is. Road is long and narrow and can not accommodate more that a few vehicles.
