Considers the work of the Boston-based architectural firm of Peabody & Stearns. "Although overshadowed in the architectural canon by some of its more celebrated contemporaries -- such as H. H. Richardson; McKim, Mead & White; Bruce Price; and John Calvin Stevens -- Peabody & Stearns was a major player, for both the number and the quality of its designs and also for its role as training ground for young architects. Reaching its pinnacle at the turn of the nineteenth century, the firm also had great success in designing some of the Northeast's most noteworthy country homes and seaside cottages so emblematic of the Gilded Age."
