3 School Street

3 School Street, Provincetown (2011), by David W. Dunlap.The iconic Days’ Cottages in North Truro have taken care of guests for generations. But who’s taken care of Days’ Cottages? For a time in the mid-20th century, it was Nellie Almena (Williams) Vieira (±1887-1958), who lived here in her final years. This house was constructed between the 1840s and 1860s. Mrs. Vieira and her daughter, Justine Mary (Vieira) Roderick (1909-1986), bought the property in 1951. It is currently owned by Alan P. Duggan. Not, of course, the Alan Dugan, who spelled his name differently and died in 2003. • MapHistoric District SurveyAssessor’s Online Database PDF ¶ Posted 2013-08-25

5 School Street

5 School Street, Provincetown (2011), by David W. Dunlap.There is surely a very interesting story behind this very oddly shaped house, but I don’t know it yet. The Historic District Survey surmises that it might have started out as a one-story cottage that was raised to two stories in the late 1800s or early 1900s. John and Mary A. Ferreira bought it from Dorothy M. Souza in 1941. Their daughter, Rose M. (Ferreira) Palheiro, held on to it until 2001, when she sold the property to Patricia Ann Souza. • MapHistoric District Survey, main house • Historic District Survey, garage • Assessor’s Online Database PDF ¶ Posted 2013-08
