The James House in Hampton, New Hampshire has
been discovered as a true first period colonial structure. The
home built for Benjamin James between 1720 and 1723, near the
salt meadows of Drakeside Road, is a time capsule of almost 300
years of history.
Dr. James L. Garvin, New Hampshire State Architectural
Historian, states that "the James House in Hampton presents
the most important and exciting opportunity to preserve the architectural
and historic value of a rare first period house in New Hampshire."
