Interesting little book. Numerous black and white photos of churches and other places of worship in the Carolinas. The pictures in the book come from the Historical American Building Survey in the Library of Congress. Most are from the 30's & 40's and were sponsored by the government similar to the WPA. Wonderful architecture throughout the book. I found myself getting out a magnifying glass as some of the details were so fine or the picture was so far away. This would certainly not deter me from this book however. Was interesting to see the different styles of interiors and exteriors. Greek Revival, Very Gothic, a round church is featured. Spires that reach for the sky one that is 19 stories high. Another spire that fell during a hurricane and embedded itself in the ground, where the author states it still remains, but not pictured however.… (mere)

I really enjoyed looking through this book. The pictures of the homes and their interiors are great. There are some details to accompany each picture, but like another reviewer stated, I wish there were a little more details! Especially about the family who suffered great misfortune! Also,I wish the houses were organized by geographic location, and that the locations were given with each picture, instead of on a back page. Overall, I enjoyed it and learned some new things, and added some new places to my "hope to visit" list!… (mere)

I really enjoyed looking through this book of South Carolina plantation homes. Some were a little surprising (like a Frank Lloyd Wright house, complete with a dog kennel--also designed by Wright--in back), but mostly it shows numerous big old homes, with plenty of porches, columns, staircases, Spanish moss, and ivey. I enjoyed the captions with each picture as well, which sometimes explained a little bit of history about the house.
