From the Cape Cod National Seashore:

Who's intrigued by the houses with flat roofs and lots of glass tucked away in the Wellfleet woods? These historic properties are reminders of a time when internationally renowned, European-trained architects and American Modern architects built recreational houses on the Outer Cape. Three of these houses--Kugel/Gips, Weidlinger, and Hatch, have been restored by the Cape Cod Modern House Trust under a lease arrangement with the National Park Service. There will be free open houses at the Kugel /Gips House on April 23 and at the Weidlinger House on May 30. Hours are 11 am to 5 pm. Guided tours to all three properties (fee program) are also offered. Visit for details. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
