James Michael Curley Mansion

350 Jamaica Way

Mayor Curley had this Georgian Revival, 21 room mansion built in 1915, complete with a crystal chandelier, Italian marble fireplace, mahogany interior and a three-story spiral staircase. The ornate shamrocks carved into the 30 window shutters came to symbolize the triumph of the Boston Irish in the political arena. The contractor was Thomas O'Connor, whose firm also built a number of schools throughout Boston. The City of Boston owns the mansion, which overlooks Jamaica Pond, and uses it for community events and youth leadership conferences. The Boston Trust Office maintains the grounds.
