7 Conway Street

 

The addition of a shed dormer (since the picture above was taken in 1976) has changed the character of this once-doughty three-quarter Cape, which was built around 1820, according to the Massachusetts Historical Commission Inventory. A century ago, the cottage was owned by Maria McNear of Walpole, Mass., who was known for her patriotic habit of unfailingly displaying the American flag above her home. Her family continued to own the property until 1960, when it was purchased by John R. Henrique (b ±1930), a carpenter, and his wife, Martha W. Henrique (b ±1932). The Rev. Canon Gregory Howe (b 1939), the longtime rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Dover, Del., and his wife, Bernice A. “Bunny” Howe (b 1935), acquired the property in 1971 and continue to own it. • Assessor’s Online DatabaseHistoric District Survey ¶ Posted 2012-10-23
