34 ESSEX ST. 1845 Joseph Thompson Abbot House, Gothic Revival style Owners: Barry R. Finegold and William J. Dalton Architect: Gregory W. McIntosh, Lincoln Architects LLC Built by Jacob Chickering, this small Gothic Revival cottage is one of only three remaining homes in town to embrace this high style of architecture. A former parsonage, the house was converted into offices in 1983 and sold to the law firm of Barry R. Finegold and William J. Dalton in 2005. They razed a rear, 1980s addition and replaced it in 2012 with a two-story addition that successfully incorporates the Gothic Revival detail found in the original building.
