Web Site of the Week: Historic American Buildings Survey

The Historic American Buildings Survey is a stellar repository of material that will delight and amaze persons with a passion for the built environment. These photos, drawings, and other items document achievements in architecture, engineering, and landscape design in the United States and its territories through a comprehensive range of building types, engineering technologies, and landscapes. All told, there are over 556,000 separate items here covering everything from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Pueblo of Acoma. First-time visitors may wish to look at the Background and Scope area before diving in. It’s easy to search the collection, and users might want type in a hometown, a favorite building, or even an architectural style. All in all, it’s a wonderful trip through American history via its historic landscapes, urban, suburban, and other. [KMG]
