at the Hatch House
Tuesday May 30, 11am to 4pm
Free and open to the public
The Cape Cod Modern House Trust invites you to visit the restored Hatch House, created in 1961 by local modern designer Jack Hall.
In 2013, after the house was leased to the Trust by the National Park Service, it was fully restored and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
Sitting above Cape Cod Bay in the unspoiled National Seashore, this radical structure illustrates Hall’s interest in modular, pre-fab housing and an intimate engagement with the nature. The restoration was a collaboration between the Trust, the Cape Cod National Seashore, and the voters of Wellfleet who supported the project through Community Preservation Act funding.
The house also serves as a platform for the Trust’s artist/scholar residencies every spring and fall.
This year we are hosting an art/science collaboration residency in which artists will be paired with Park staff scientists doing field research.
