Centennial of an art colony on Cape Cod

Provincetown, of course, was not founded just 100 years ago. First occupied by the Nauset Indians, it was the initial landing spot of the Pilgrims before they settled at Plimoth Plantation on the mainland. Provincetown subsequently became an important fishing village, situated as it was on the tip of Cape Cod which defines the eastern edge of Cape Code Bay. But as World War I closed off Paris and other art centers in Europe to aspiring painters, Provincetown became a go-to spot because of its tranquil location and spectacular light.
