There’s some working happening in the house in which Rear Admiral Donald MacMillan (1874-1970) lived at 473 Commercial St. in Provincetown. The town’s wharf is named for its most famous resident—McMillan was an arctic explorer, geographer and naturalist who, despite all his travels, lived close to where he was born.
It’s a sign of the times: artist Steve Kennedy’s new sign, which depicts local fishermen and pays tribute to iconic doryman Eddie Ritter, welcomes those coming into Provincetown by way of Commercial Street/Route 6A. The previous sign, which was more than 15 years old and painted by Frank Milby, faded over the years.
