This Nantucket-style Greek Revival house was built for Captain James Henry Swift in 1844. He is the original owner but the house is revered as the residence of Job C. Tripp, a close associate of Henry H. Rogers and best known for his many years of community service to the town of Fairhaven. While residing in the house, from 1865 through 1917, he hosted Manjiro Nakahama on his second visit to Fairhaven, and also entertained Dr. Nakahama, Manjiro's grandson. Manjiro Nakahama is well known as the Japanese boy rescued at sea by Captain Whitfield and brought by him to live in Fairhaven for several years. Manjiro eventually became a national hero in Japan which has resulted in a visit to the town by the Japanese Emperor and many visits by Japanese tourist.
