User Accessibility Experience
While the Provincetown Museum is physically accessible, I did not remember to check for audio transcripts or video captioning. The Pilgrim Monument was built before the ADA laws impacting building designs making it inaccessible for those who have difficulty walking many flights of stairs/ramps or wheelchair users.

In addition to the fantastic tour provided by Danielle Jeanloz and Peter King who were clearly passionate about sharing Chatham’s history with us, Danielle followed up with an email to answer one of my questions.
My question had to do with the bricks the captain used to build his fireplace and basement with. While they would have to examine any document they have for reference to the bricks, they did find two tidbits online.
This led me to do a search of my own which turned up another fascinating detailed history of brick making in Massachusetts.
