Families and Farmhouses in Nineteenth-Century America

Vernacular Design and Social Change

Sally McMurry

Farmhouse plans designed by 19th-century rural American men and women are vital indicators of the work patterns, social interactions, and cultural values of the era. This study demonstrates the ingenious ways in which Americans designed farmhouses in keeping with their vision of a dynamic, reformed culture.
