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."
