In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many northeast urban elites built extravagant country houses in the Berkshires, which they would use for weekend getaways. This work architecturally profiles 25 of these country houses through black and white photographs, many depicting the leisurely life of the families at the houses, and textual descriptions of the houses' construction, settings, and any architectural changes over the years. An introductory essay describes the lifestyle surrounding the Berkshire country houses. Brief biographical notes on the architects are also presented.
