Significance: Freeman's Wharf is a remnant of a former trap fishing and cold storage facility also known as the Cape Cod Cold Storage which functioned as a principal industry and employer in Provincetown during the period of significance. As such it represents contemporary technology for the off-loading and processing of fish from a typical Provincetown trap fishing and cold storage operation during the mid-late 19th and early 20th centuries.
