We’re in Whorf family territory. In the 1850s, Sarah Whorf owned this handsome full Cape, built in the late 18th century. Its distance from the street line is testimony to its having been built before there even was a Commercial Street with which to align. Arnold Geissbuhler and William Boogar Jr., sculptors who are well represented at the Church of St. Mary’s of the Harbor, each lived here at one point, as did the sculptor Jack Kearney and his family, during the 1960s.
