27 Conant Street Condominium

Seraphine Taves (1874-1948) came to America from São Miguel in 1894, followed a year later by his fiancée, Gloria Bent. In his early years, he fished the Grand Banks, and continued going to sea until he was in his early 60s. The Taves children were Seraphine F. Taves (b ±1921), a fishhandler who owned this property and lived here in the 1950s and ’60s as an adult; Lawrence Taves (b ±1905), a fish buyer who also lived here as an adult; Joseph Taves; Irene (Taves) West (b ±1901), who lived here as an adult; Mary (Taves) Cabral; and Olivia (Taves) Gallinetti (b ±1913), who also lived here well into her adulthood. It was converted into a two-unit condo by David M. Nicolau.
