Description

Subtitle: “Discovering the Places We Once Called Home.” Like people, houses are created, live, and grow old. Like us, they eventually disappear. In Where We Lived, these houses are our guides as we journey through the vanished landscape of our country when it was very young. Mile markers on this journey are the remarkable photographs of the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), created to document the nation's early structures. The narrative of our journey draws heavily on travelers' accounts, public records, community and family histories, letters and diaries, even novels and stories. It also takes note of the Direct Tax of 1798, which counted and measured houses from Maine to Georgia. From New England to the Middle States, from the South to the territory between the Appalachians and the Mississippi River called the West, you're treated to the earliest surviving homes of the New World to the "new" houses of the Greek Revival.
