11 Conwell Street

 
The family of Regina and Reginald F. Jason have owned this property for more than a half century. The tracks of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad once ran by, just a few yards away. Jason (b 1919) was the son of Manuel Philip Jason, one of Provincetown’s celebrated barbers. He married Regina Andraschko (b 1923) of Wisconsin in 1943. Jason owned a trucking business. In the early 1980s, Renald R. Jason (b 1955) and Regan C. Jason (b 1960) also lived here. They, too, were truck drivers. • And as Rena Jackson notes in the comment below: “There was also Reggie Jason Jr. and three girls: Regis, Regina and Rena. And the boys are all still truck drivers today.” Assessor’s Online Database ¶ Updated 2012-11-09

  1. There was also Reggie Jason Jr. and three girls: Regis, Regina and Rena. And the boys are all still truck drivers today.

  2. Uncle Reggie’s mother, who lived at 27 Conwell Street, is one of the women featured in Norma Holt’s exhibit at Fishermen’s Wharf, They Also Faced the Sea: Mary “Aunt Mamie” (Hopwood) Jason.

  3. I moved into the house, which I purchased from the Jason family, in August 2016. I learned from Regis that the original Cape Cod house had three bedrooms downstairs. In the late 1950s the second floor was added. At the time of three bedrooms were moved to the upstairs.

    During renovations on the back two attached rooms which were rented out to art students studying at the Henry Hensche school, a long 14 foot oar was discovered tucked under the floorboards. I imagine it might’ve been used on one of the life-saving boats back in the day .
    I was told that Salvador Del Deo, when he first moved to Provincetown, rented the small studio apartment above the garage. ( that’s something that I’ve been meaning to check out with him as he still lives in town .)

    This property has soul and while listed as being built in 1850, it is possible it predates that year.

    when the original Townhall burned down, early records were lost and it’s my understanding that 1850 was the default date if no other records existed.
