James Michael Curley House

The James Michael Curley House was the primary residence for one of the most infamous and influential politicians in state history – James Michael Curley. Originally built in 1915 by the former Boston Mayor and Governor, this Neo-Georgian mansion is now a registered historical landmark. After a competitive RFP process, J.L. Dunn was selected by the City of Boston to complete a specific exterior restoration project. Some highlights included window restoration, stained glass restoration, storm windows, copper gutters/downspouts/roofs, new rear entrance, and a handicap accessible bathroom. J.L. Dunn and Wessling Architects carefully reviewed every detail to ensure that all new construction materials matched the original construction in order to preserve the house’s history and character.
