Henry Cabot Lodge Porter Lodge Addition

Eastern Point
Nahant, Mass.

Year Built: 1869
Year Demolished: Unsure of Date

Charles Brigham designed an addition to the porter’s lodge, including the addition of a bay window. He apparently did other work to the buildings on the property, but it is unclear what those alterations were. Brigham simply wrote:

“I am doing some trifling work for Mr. James at Nahant, such as a bay window to the lodge.”

At the time, the property was owned by George Abbot James, who later had Sturgis & Brigham design a cottage for him on the adjacent plot.
