SAH Archipedia: Tennessee and Missouri Entries Added

by SAH News | Oct 13, 2016

Fifty new entries from the state of Tennessee have been added to SAH Archipedia. With contributions by state coordinator Gavin Townsend, along with Robbie D. Jones, Claudette Stager, and Gray Stothart, buildings covered range from antebellum Wessyngton Plantation to the Ryman Auditorium, former home of the Grand Ole Opry. This new material represents the first half of a list comprising Tennessee’s most representative buildings and sites.

From the Gateway Arch and the Scott Joplin House to Ha Ha Tonka State Park and the Boley Building, twenty-five entries covering the state of Missouri have also been added to SAH Archipedia, drawn from the forthcoming Buildings of the United States volume by Osmund Overby, Carol Grove, and Cole Woodcox, with contributions by a number of other architectural historians.
