This 19th century Victorian Colonial house was built by Rueben Brown a prosperous coal and lumber merchant from Provincetown. The house was built for his bride to be Albina Brooks in 1888. The free standing circular front staircase was built by a cabinet maker in Salem MA. It was to be his wedding gift for Albina from her father who was a noted sea captain from Salem. It was brought by one of his ships to Provincetown where it was painstakingly constructed. The staircase is featured in Cape Light a book by Joel Meyerowitz a renowned photographer whose photographs are exibited in galleries and museums world wide. The Victorian house has the elegance and grandeur of the late eighteen hundreds. All rooms contain queen size beds and gracious furniture all with sitting areas.
