Residency Programs - Dune Shacks of the Peaked Hill Bars Historic District
The Dune Shacks of Peaked Hill Bars Historic District is a 1900-acre National Register district significant for its association with the historic development of art and literature in America; for its representation of a rare, fragile property type; and for its association with the poet Harry Kemp. It has long been a place of inspiration, contemplation, creativity, and solitude.
Since the mid-1990s, the National Park Service has had agreements with non-profit organizations that offer artist-in-residence and writer-in-residence programs in the historic dune shacks. In addition to these opportunities, there are additional residencies available for 2013, including architecture, engineering, science, cultural/historic, dance, music, and journalism.

The area at the northernmost tip of Cape Cod National Seashore in Provincetown is known as “Race Point”. It gets its name from the swift tidal “race” that swirls from ocean to bay around the point. The swimming beach is located a safe distance away in calmer waters.
