“Still going strong at the age of 80, Captain George Walter Crosby, who made his home here, was the oldest active weir fisherman at the time of his death in 1934. He worked for the Consolidated Cold Storage, now the Ice House Condominium. Joseph F. Perry, who ran the Fo’csle Tavern with Sylvester Santos, bought this house in 1959  the same year that the Fo’csle admitted women. The Perry Family owned the property for 49 years, selling in 2008…” (David Dunlap, Building Provincetown). Seller is broker/agent. Listing courtesy of Bue Bay Real Estate.
