Sturgis, John Hubbard, 1834-1888


Sturgis had a twenty-year partnership with Charles Brigham as the firm Sturgis & Brigham. The firm concentrated on fine domestic architecture, most of the houses being around the Back Bay quarter of Boston and in Newport. They produced fine public commissions as well, such as the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (1872) and Boston Young Men’s Christian Association Building. Sturgis was the architect of Emmanuel Church in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA. This church was founded by his brother, Major Russell Sturgis, Jr., in 1882.
