The Captain Bangs Hallet House is not just a Sea Captain's home, it's a museum filled with items from the 1700 and 1800s that reveal how people lived at the time, how they carried on everyday life, cooking, entertaining, learning new skills, and how they pursued a living during Cape Cod's colorful past.
