410 Commercial Street

Capt. John Russe Jr. (b ±1910) was the skipper of the John David, a dragger, named after his son, John David Russe. Russe’s father, John Sr. (±1886-1944), had come to Provincetown from Portugal in 1911. Captain Russe and his wife, Olivia Santos, were wed in 1939 and purchased this house in 1947. (Her father, Manuel Santos, died of a heart attack aboard the John David.) The house remained in the Russe family until 1984 and has been owned since then by Dr. Brian O’Malley.
