10 Bradford Street, Building 2. [2022, Dunlap]
The parcel was acquired in 1966 by Rockie and Josephine C. Romeo from Frank S. Alves III, as administrator of the estate of his mother, Marien Elizabeth (Irving) Alves (1896-1965). A cottage on the property was damaged in 2007 by arson, during one of the periods in town life when firebugs seem to be on the loose. At the time, Mrs. Romeo was living in the cottage during the summer so that she could rent out the main house (Building 1) to make money to pay increasing property taxes.1 I am not sure whether that cottage and this building are one and the same.
More recently, in 2020, the parcel was purchased for $925,000 by Dol-Fin Development L.L.C. — Elizabeth Barbeau, Lyn A. Plummer, and Maria A. Cirino — which is becoming a significant property owner in town.2
