Smithsonian National Museum of American History: Within These Walls

11/28/2012 12:00:00 AM
Two hundred years' worth of American history all in one house. Learn what a single-family dwelling can tell us about what life was like during five different periods of American history: the colonial era, the Revolutionary era, the Civil War era, the late nineteenth century, and World War II. Learn a brief family history of the five families who lived in this house throughout the span of years, find out what the house itself can tell historians about the neighborhood, the changes in the house, and when the house was built. You can learn how to do research on the house you live in. There are several resources for further research, including resources for teachers to extend the information on this interesting site.
