Year Purchased: 1988
About: Mr. Marcus M. Sherman has lived in this home since 1956. He is a licenced sailboat captain and has been operating Catboat Rides Inc. since 1989. See more about him on Facebook.
Why Hyannis Port: Free beaches and sailing. Antique ambience. Built 1786. Quiet neighborhood but near downtown Main Street, Hyannis. Comfortable living.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The Town of Barnstable Historical Commission* indicates that in 1786 Winslow Marston was the builder and the first resident of the old house at 70 Marston Avenue. This is unsupported by Census, Family or Probate records. Stephen Davis's argument that Joseph Bassett was the builder and first resident is supported by Census, early maps and family history. Both the Historic Commission and Davis agree that the house was built in 1786.
