Exceptional Resources: The Historic American Buildings Survey

















Used extensively by ATR for conducting research on American vernacular architecture, the Historic American Buildings Survey posted by the Library of Congress is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in either conducting research on American vernacular architecture, or simply for admiring the beautiful black and white photographs or hand-drafted drawing sets of the timeless works of architecture found in the collection.
