Creek Cottage Condominium
There is no missing or mistaking Creek Cottage, at least not in its current livery, a color quite close to what Benjamin Moore calls “Northern Lights.” The Almeida family once lived here. Albert Almeida (±1887-1964) was a shoemaker from São Miguel in the Azores. His first [?] wife, Julia (Gomes) Almeida (±1893-1952), was also from the Azores. Lisa Coleman, a great-granddaughter of Viola Cook, who lived on the abutting property at 62 Creek Road, said her mother told her that Almeida was a very kind man.
“She loved going over there at Christmas time because they had a beautiful manger set that was hand-carved (I think she said it was from Portugal) and it took up the whole room,” Coleman told me in 2013. • Assessor’s Online Database, Unit 1 • Assessor’s Online Database, Unit 2 ¶ Updated 2013-01-04
