Isaac John Pavao (1905-1970), a carpenter who was always known as John, and his wife Mary Constance (Santos) Pavao (1916–1992) bought this house in 1947. That was around the same time Pavao was constructing a clubhouse and out-buildings for Hawthorne Bissell at what would become the Herring Cove Tennis Club, 21 Bradford Street Extension. Their son Ronald Pavao is the chief executive officer and founder of the Fireside Insurance Agency. The Pavao family sold this property in 1975 for $54,000 to Ernest R. Cooper. It was built around 1880, according to town records.
