Summary

The author confesses that she became interested in doing this pictorial study just because she likes nineteenth century architecture. And for this very reason she has composed a scholarly appreciation, rather than a cumbersome technical analysis, that all can read with enjoyment, whatever one's acquaintance with the formal study of architecture. In the introductory chapters she recounts the history of the region and the economic and social background of its people, as well as the relevant architectural history.

This book helps one appreciate why, after years of neglect and abuse, nineteenth-century architecture has finally been recognized as integral and valuable to the American cultural heritage. Here is a collection of photographs which capture the charm and often stately demeanor typical of private nineteenth-century dwellings in the northeastern United States.

Jewel Helen Conover joined the faculty of the State University of New York College of Education at Fredonia in 1947 as Assistant Professor in the Art Department. She has been Acting Chairman, then Chairman of that department since 1955. In addition to holding the Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts degrees from the University of Missouri, Professor Conover completed studio work at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and has travelled abroad extensively to study art history.
