Perspectives in Vernacular Architecture
Part of the ADI project page (DRAFT) project
Editor(s): Camille Wells
The Chesapeake Farm Buildings Survey was organized in the Fall of 1980 as a long-term effort to record seriously threatened agricultural buildings in the Tidewater region. The initial group of eight participants has expanded to roughly fifteen architectural historians, folklorists, and social historians. Bi-monthly meetings are held in Annapolis, Williamsburg, and Richmond. Buildings are identified and recorded by participants according to significance, likelihood of destruction, and accessibility. Working individually or in teams, members bring their work to the meetings for discussion with the rest of the group. Because of the variety of professional interests represented within the group, and because members are geographically scattered from northern Delaware to North Carolina, the recorded buildings reflect a broad spectrum of origin and use.
Report also includes a topographical description and overview of cultural resources at the Adelphi Laboratory Center.
