The James Villa

 

Sitting atop Cap Canon, this villa was built in 1888 by American artist Frederick James (Philadelphia, 1845 - Percé, 1907). Around what used to be a typically modest Gaspesian dwelling that had been moved to its present location, the artist made his workshop and plans for his future residence.
