Knox Beckius and photographer William H. Johnson breathe life into the history of the region s thirty-six most important and picturesque homes, from the earliest homesteads of the 1600s through the Gilded Age mansions of the early twentieth century. By revealing the human dramas that played out within these remarkable homes, Beckius traces the evolution of the American Dream. Paired with Johnson s exquisite photography, the result is a detailed study of the architectural features, landscape elements, and ingenuity that make these homes examples of classic American style. "
