Mariposa Cottage

“One of the older members of the summer colony,” was how The Advocate described Mary E. T. (Noble) Crane (1850-1932) of Marblehead, Mass. She spent many years in this cottage, which the Crane family called Mariposa ā€” Butterfly in Portuguese (and in Spanish). Her daughter Adele (b 1887) continued to use the cottage into the 1960s. It was purchased in 1999 by the Rev. Teri Motley, who is a member of the Walker family through her mother, Louise (Walker) McCannel.
