John Oliver (1899-1978) was a painter. But not that kind. He painted houses and buildings. It was Oliver who applied coats of fresh red paint to the Lancey mansion when it housed the Historical Museum and Oliver who put touches of yellow on “Friday” Cook’s tap room. He acquired this property from Manuel Oliver in 1946 and added his wife, Annie Veronica (Meads) Oliver (1911-2009), to the deed in 1962. She worked as a fish handler, launderer, and housekeeper, and was also active in church and civic life. She traveled to Portugal in her 70s so she could see where her people had come from. Her estate owned the property until 2017, when it was sold for $702,000 to a Boston couple.
