Julia Majort's insight:

The Pilgrims were an odd bunch. On one hand, they were an independent sort and left England to find freedom to pursue their beliefs; on the other hand their beliefs required a high degree of conformity from their communal members. It seems Provincetown kept the independence and Plymouth inherited the conformity

It's a small town only three miles in length adjacent to 4000 acres of dunes, forest, and 30 miles of beach that were given over to the National Seashore in 1961. Provincetown has Cape Cod Bay on the southeast and Province Lands dunes, Beech Forest, and the the ocean beaches of Herring Cove and Race Point on the northwest.

Provincetown was the Pilgrims' first landing place in the New World. This is commemorated by the tall granite monument seen in many Provincetown photographs. The Pilgrims stayed a short while in Provincetown then moved and settled in Plymouth, most likely because they did not find an adequate source of fresh water. Provincetown still brings its water in from Truro. Demand and economics will probably make desalinization feasible in the future.
