Text last updated in 2015 | Visible far and wide when the tree cover falls, No. 298 stands as the pinnacle of A-frame architecture in town. It was constructed sometime after 1955 for Dorrit and Maria Christine Seidler, who purchased the property from Alice Strassburger, the widow of Perry Beaver Strassburger, a blue-blooded stock broker, book and map collector, and horseman. The building’s aesthetic cousins in this exuberant style of atomic-age-baby-boom resort architecture include Hersheldon’s Leather, 317 Commercial; the Provincetown United Methodist Church, 20 Shank Painter Road; and 5 Winston Avenue. The painter Anthony Fisher, an associate professor in fine arts at UMass-Dartmouth, is the current owner.
