1790 Regatta of Cotuit Building

Here is a photograph of the front entrance of the "Regatta" Restaurant of Cotuit, Mass. on Cape Cod taken in February 2012. Built in 1790 by Roland Thatcher Crocker, this retired sea captain used this building as his home as well as a general store and lodging facility for  Boston stage coach riders.   The original wide pine flooring is still found in this Federal Colonial along with many fireplace hearths. I found it interesting that the second level restroom had a full bath in it but I didn't take a shower while I was there as I forgot to bring a towel with me for dinner that night.
