Landing panel: Old Harbor U.S. Life Saving Station, Provincetown, Massachusetts. This historic station, originally located at Nauset Beach near the entrance to Chatham Harbor in Chatham, Massachusetts, is now located in Provincetown. It was moved in 1977 due to the threat of erosion. The station was built in 1897 as a U.S. Life-Saving Service Station, and became a U.S. Coast Guard Station in 1915. Decommissioned in 1944, the station was under private ownership from 1947 until 1973, when it was purchased by the National Park Service. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Image credit: By JCefaly, own work. CC BY-SA 3.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0), via Wikimedia Commons.
