6 Conant Street

 
A full Cape house from the period between 1840 and 1860, according to the Historic District Survey. Judith Romanowski and Carolyn Lekavich acquired it in 2010 from Francis X. McCauley, according to the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds and the Assessor’s Online Database.

There is a cottage on the property that is available for rent through HomeAway.

This was the home from the 1940s through the early 1960s, at least, of the Santos family. Born in Provincetown, John Richard Santos (±1887-1952) was a weir fisherman whose father, Joseph, had come from São Miguel and whose mother, Emily (Tarvers) Santos, was a Provincetown native. He was married to Rose (Viera) Santos (b ±1897). Their son, Richard, was teaching at Provincetown High School at the time of John’s death, in this house.
