The Message of Houses and Their Contents, 1780-1820

7/11/2014 By:

Use this very complete lesson plan to explore New England houses from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Topics explored include why housing architecture changes, how the home owner adapts the interior use of space, and what changes are made in materials to build the houses. You’ll find plenty of pictures that help illustrate the objectives of the lesson. The activities for students are interesting and teach the use of primary source materials. In addition to the dwellings, there is information on the gardens near the houses, and why those gardens were so important to the community.
