George T. Moffatt Building
Camden StreetCharles Brigham made “preliminary sketches” for George T. Moffatt in 1866. It appears that this building was never built.
Year Built: 1866
The design cost $20.00, which means that the construction costs would have cost approximately $400. Sturgis & Brigham strongly believed in architects being paid fair wages for their services. In other letters not involving Moffatt, it is clear that the burgeoning profession of architectural design was struggling to establish itself and the firm required that clients pay 5% of the cost of construction as the price for the plans, consistent with the standards of the Boston Society of Architects.
