If you graduated from Provincetown High School in recent decades, you might owe an indirect debt of gratitude to this house. Its sale upon the death of Celia Francis in 1983 helped create, as her bequest directed, the $800,000 John Anderson Francis Family Scholarship Fund, which has annually awarded financial aid to eligible students bound for two- and four-year colleges. Francis was herself a graduate of P.H.S. in 1921 and used a scholarship she’d been awarded to attend Boston University. Her father, John A. Francis, was the proprietor of Francis’s Flats at 577 Commercial; most famously the lodging of Eugene O’Neill. The scholarship awards come only from interest. In 2011, the fund was carrying a balance of $1.2 million according to the committee chairwoman, Gail S. Browne.
