Also, 10 Dyer Street.

Recalling the Moorish underpinnings of Portuguese culture, this household was once protected by the hand of Fatima (pictured), daughter of Muhammad. A 2015 renovation revealed that the hand guarded a secret, too: how an old Cape — its form visible in rough-hewn vertical planks — had grown to two and a half stories. No later than the 1930s, this was the home of Maria, or Mary (Pires) Langley (b 1914), sister of Capt. Manuel Lourenço Pires Jr. of Olhão, who also lived here. Her husband, Donald E. Langley (b 1914), was a carpenter. The Langley family sold the property in 2011.
