The Pilgrims first landed in Provincetown in 1620, before moving on to more fertile lands. The area became a popular stopover for fisherman and seamen and was rife with drinking, gambling and smuggling. Settlers eventually moved up the Cape and the town was incorporated in 1727. During the 19th century, whaling became the primary business and Provincetown became one of the main whaling ports. After the decline of whaling, tourism took over as the main industry and a railroad was built. This brought in writers and artists who took over some of the previously abandoned buildings where galleries and theaters flourished. There has been a gay presence in Provincetown since the early 20th century, and it has become the best-known gay summer resort on the East Coast.
