Historic Architecture of Pennsylvania

Scott D. Butcher

Schiffer Publishing Ltd.


160 pages




This color illustrated guide draws on about a dozen style guides to create a consensus description for architectural styles found in six counties of South Central Pennsylvania over the past 300 years. Offering a visual history of the architecture of the region, the book is organized chronologically, from the colonial period through the early republic, the late Victorian period, late 19th-century and early 20th-century revivals, and modern movements. It includes a glossary of architectural terms and contains large-format, high-quality color photos on every page.
