Welcome to the Wellfleet Historical Society and Museum online database of its photography collection. This project was made possible by the Town of Wellfleet’s Community Preservation Act funds received in 2014.

If you are using the mobile version there may be some limitations depending on one's operating system and device.

To begin, click the PHOTOS tab above to randomly view the whole collection as a list with short titles.If you want to narrow your search and need instructions as to how to perform a KEYWORD or ADVANCED search, click the HELP button in the upper right hand corner. Alternatively, you can click on any ALBUM icons below to view photographs grouped by subject. These virtual albums attempt to replicate the physical albums we used to use to share the collection. The actual photographs are now safely kept in archival boxes but are still accessible with an appointment.

We are asking the public to please help us further identify, describe, and date these photographs by clicking the SEND US FEEDBACK button found in the upper right of each individual record. We also welcome all comments, criticisms, and suggestions.
