George Abbott James Speculation House
Charles Brigham made at least preliminary sketches for a house in Nahant for George Abbott James. Brigham wrote,
Year Built: 1869
“I have made sketches (some time ago) for a house at Nahant for Mr. James which he proposed to build upon the site of a little cottage nearby the church—on speculation—but as some friends of his are talking of purchasing it, I may thereby change clients.”
It is unclear whether this house was built.
