Provincetown History: Provincetown Public Library: Considered the crown jewel of 19th Century architecture in Provincetown the former Heritage Museum building at Center Street on Commercial Street is undergoing it's first major reconstruction since it was converted from a Methodist Church into the Chrysler Art Museum in the 1960's. After a multi-million dollar upgrade the church building will become Provincetown's new Public Library. Encased inside, left over from its career as a museum, is a half-scale model (some 50 feet!) of the Rose Dorothea, the Grand Banks schooner which won the Lipton's Cup in the early part of the last century. Seen in photos on the left is the cupola removed from its perch atop the building's steeple. Townspeople were amazed at its size, seeing it for the first time in their lives at ground level. [2003]
