Tree Tops

The lovely name of this house — Tree Tops — aptly describes its commanding position overlooking the East End. It was built in 1910 and operated until 1952 as the Tree Tops: Studio Gift Shop and Piazza Tea Room, whose original proprietor was Miss Zoe M. B. Morse. It promised patrons “luncheon, tea and supper on porch overlooking the harbor,” with “indoor tables for rainy weather.” Peter Manso, the author of Ptown, was one of the subsequent owners. The house was purchased in 2007 by Eric Dray, an organizer of the Provincetown Historic District and chairman of the Historical Commission, who “renovated it with historic accuracy,” Boston Spirit said.
