30-32 Pearl Street

30-32 Pearl Street, Provincetown (2012), by David W. Dunlap.This plainly handsome house from the 1850s was purchased in 1928 by John F. Crave (b ±1895), a fisherman, and his wife, Emma F. Crave (b 1891). Among the children they raised here were John F. Crave Jr. (1926-2010), the proprietor of Crave’s Frames at 509 Commercial Street; Isadore F. Crave (b 1929); and the twins Francelina Clara and Frances Caroline Crave (b 1933). The elder Crave ended up back in Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Mrs. Crave lived here through the 1980s. It’s changed hands four times since then and is now owned by Steven C. Nason and Paul E. Glover of Cambridge. • Historic District SurveyAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-06-09

  1. Emma and John Crave were my grandparents. Their three other children were Joseph, who died at age 7 or 8 from a sledding accident down the Monument Hill; Ann (Galligan), who passed away in November 2009, just four weeks before Dad; and Josephine (Romeo), who has lived in Tampa, Fla., for many years.

    My Uncle Isadore and his wife Adaline lived here with my grandmother and raised their children Almedia, Frankie, and Little Adaline — as well as Frankie’s daughter Noel — in this house for many years before the children got older and left, and Nana passed away.
