The one hundred sites in this guide are in all six New England States, dating from the early 17th century to the threshold of our time, and the architectural styles reflect those popular over a period of four centuries. The sites are varied and were the homes of leaders and literati, merchants and millionaires, poets and Pilgrims, philosophers and farmers, and seafarers and Shakers. Each chapter lists the museum's location, web address, and telephone number and provides a description of the historical occupants as well as an in-depth look at the house's place in national and architectural history. Sites include: Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, Hartford, CT - Sarah Orne Jewett House, South Berwick, ME - Emily Dickinson Museum, Amherst, MA - Robert Frost Farm, Derry, NH - The Breakers, Newport, RI. With 50 color photographs.
