A RESTORATION PLAN FOR THE JAMES BRICE HOUSE ATTIC
Publication or External Link
The James Brice House is a National Register-listed property located within the historic district of Annapolis, Maryland. Despite its architectural significance, numerous components of the house have been largely altered, and the structure is currently undergoing an extensive restoration. The attic is one of the areas that has been dramatically changed, and it is where some, if not all, of James Brice’s enslaved workers were housed. Too often the histories of enslaved workers are overlooked and their living spaces poorly preserved, as is the case here. The aim of this project is to create a restoration plan for the attic to rectify this problem and create a historically accurate interpretation of both the occupants and their living space at the James Brice House.
