Summary

Summary

In each illustrated chapter, readers can easily identify these ever-popular styles and trace the roots of American period architecture. From Federal to Cape Cod to Southern Colonial, each style section features artists renderings and detailed floor plans for a variety of designs. Includes a section of historic replicas of homes with a direct connection to history: the Greek Revival of Woodrow Wilson's birth, the Gambrel House of John Paul Jones, and the octagonal home of Thomas Jefferson.
