17 Alden Street

17 Alden Street. [2012, Dunlap]

In judging the age of this house, what are you going to go by? The classic gable-end form of the house, or the fairly modern window treatment? Choose the former — this was built around the time of the Civil War. J. Asavedo owned it in 1910, Caroline A. Dirsa in 1956. It is today the home of the artist Patricia R. Bruno (b 1948), who has lived in town more than three decades and once designed sets and costumes for the Provincetown Theater Company. The lot runs to Standish Street.

Tom Dirsa wrote on 6 December 2014: My folks bought 17 Alden St in 1947 and it was my home until I went off to college in 1959. They sold the house in 1961 and moved to North Truro where they spent the rest of their lives.

Patricia Bruno wrote on 1 April 2015: Previous to Patricia Bruno owning the house, artist Joan Pereira owned the house.
