SAH Archipedia Classic Buildings


SAH Archipedia is an authoritative online encyclopedia of American architecture developed by the Society of Architectural Historians in collaboration with the University of Virginia Press. Drawn from SAH's award-winning Buildings of the United States series, it contains building histories, images, maps, and peer-reviewed essays for over 20,000 US structures and is available online to SAH members and institutional subscribers. Its free, open access counterpart, SAH Archipedia Classic Buildings, is a growing collection of over 4,200 of the most significant buildings and landscapes in each state.

Work is currently underway to make SAH Archipedia completely open access, further expand and update its content, and redesign the site. These improvements will increase the public reach and usability of this important educational resource and make it freely available to anyone interested in learning more about the history of US architecture and landscapes.

SAH is grateful to the National Endowment for the Humanities for its generous support and the many individuals and organizations who have contributed to this project.


SAH thanks The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation
