i never knew that the cape had so many famous modernist residents and houses: walter gropius summered there, marcel breur, the saarinen family, florence and hans knoll, max ernst and many others.

read here about the cape cod modern house trust that is raising money to restore these mid-century modern gems, three of which are available for rent: hatch cottage (1961), the kugel/gips souse (1970), and the weidlinger house (1953) all in wellfleet, ma. see: cape cod modern house trust
