The Vacant Homes in the Seashore Need Attention

National Park ServiceScattered throughout the Cape Cod National Seashore are about 100 homes that belong to the Seashore as a result of the various 'deals' offered homeowners when the Seashore was created, in the early 1960s. These homes are located at the ends of long driveways and a few private roads. They have been used, over the years, by the Seashore as short-term rentals for their employees. Sadly, many of these pre-1960 homes have become dilapidated and dangerous due to the lack of routine upkeep and maintenance. Although they should be torn down, several problems have arisen that seem to prevent demolition. Read the story in the Cape Cod Times online edition...Here.
