22 Franklin Street

22 Franklin Street, Provincetown (2012), by David W. Dunlap.Among the older houses on Franklin Street, No. 22 was constructed in 1837. Until his death in 1950, at the age of 44, this was the home of Jackson R. Cabral, the son of Joseph and Philomena (Silva) Cabral, who had come to Provincetown from the Azores. Jackson married Margaret Enos. He worked as an engineer at the Cape Cod Cold Storage, 125 Commercial Street, where he was stricken by a heart ailment. He died in this house soon afterward.

Two years later, Joseph G. “Glory” Taves (b ±1909), a mail carrier, and his wife, Virginia R. Taves (b ±1918) purchased the property. But in the full-circle department, they sold it in 1968 to none other than Jackson and Margaret Cabral’s son, the businessman Philip L. Cabral (b 1929), and Philip’s wife, Elaine Constance (Silva) Cabral (b 1934), a bank teller. • Historic District SurveyAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2012-12-26
