Young Frank Henrique, who won and kept the heart of little Faith Perry from 34A Pearl, grew up in this house with a very large family. Pauline Henrique, who had come from Portugal, bore nine children by Manuel Henrique. Frank worked for many years at First National Stores and B. H. Dyer. In the mid-1990s, the house was nicknamed Pearly Heights, the egg artist Paul Wirhun recalled. Paul Richardson acquired the property in 1999. It includes a two-story out building, No. 42A (pictured), home of Steve Desroches (right), the staff writer at Provincetown Magazine, and his partner, the singer and songwriter Peter Donnelly (left).
