286 Bradford Street

286 Bradford Street. [2016, Dunlap]

Text last updated on 27 November 2016 | Modesty — that most appealing characteristic of old Provincetown — is evident in this 1960 home, which sits on a lot that extends one-fifth of a mile northward, all the way to the old Old Colony Railroad right-of-way. Hard to believe it was the home of William F. Silva (b±1898), the executive officer and treasurer of the Seamen’s Savings Bank who built its current headquarters, and his wife, Emma Silva (b±1901). A family from Germantown, Md., has owned the property since 1982. [Update: What was open land behind 286 Bradford Street was redeveloped in 2022 with eight houses as the Bradford Point Condominium, 286A Bradford Street.]
