Cabot designed the Gibson House for widow Catherine Hammond Gibson and her son Charles Hammond Gibson, as well as the new building for the Boston Athenaeum between 1847 and 1849. After the opening of the Boston Athenaeum, he became a leading figure in Boston architectural circles. The Athenaeum was influenced by Charles Barry's Italianate club house in London. He is also noted for producing several distinguished Queen Anne Style houses in the 1870s.
Cabot later formed a firm "Cabot and Chandler" which built numerous residences in the Back Bay and Boston environs. In 1879, Cabot & Chandler responded to H.H. Richardson's introduction of the Stick Style of Architecture into the U.S. by his Sherman Watts House in Newport, with Cabot's splendid mansion for Elbridge Torrey at 1 Melville Avenue in Dorchester, MA. The same year the firm designed 12 Fairfield Street in Boston's Back Bay for Georgiani Lowell.
In 1842, Cabot married Martha Eunice Robinson. In 1873, he married Louisa Winslow Sewall.
