The Architecture of Colonial America sets forth a brief history and an analysis of the architecture of Colonial America, in such a way that they may be of interest and value both to the general reader and to the architect. Architecture is crystallised history. Not only does it represent the life of the past in visible and enduring form, but it also represents one of the most agreeable sides of man’s creative activity. Furthermore, if we read a little between the lines, the buildings of former days tell us what manner of men and women lived in them.
