This is a very interesting book! There is a ton of history included here, from US history to the specific history of each home featured. There are also a lot of pictures, drawings, and floor plans! The information is organized by state. The beginning of each chapter starts with the history of that state or region, then there are segments about each home. I love that so much history is included here, like letters from previous residents. I loved looking through this book! If you are interested in history, houses, or architecture you should definitely check this book out! I got this book from the library, but I am adding it to my wishlist because it is so neat.
