Baker 02

(September 2012.)

Also, 9B Pearl Street.

Once known as 9B Pearl Street, this house was constructed in the early 19th century. Like many older buildings, it has a circular cellar whose shape buttresses the wall against the pressure of surrounding sand. The property was purchased in 1994 by Claire Sprague, the host and co-creator with Ann Lane of Sister Talk on WOMR-FM, a program focusing on gender issues that was broadcast for 17 years, until 2009. Sprague co-curated, with Irma Ruckstuhl, “The Jeweler’s Art: Four Provincetown Silversmiths, 1940s-1960s,” a 2003 exhibition at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and was co-executor of the Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed estate. After she sold this property in 2012, her secret little pathway down to Pearl Street was closed off. — From Building Provincetown (2015).
