Archipedia New England

Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:46 am

I just learned of a website that might be of interest to people here:

From their home page:

Archipedia New England (ANE) is a collaborative online encyclopedia of New England’s historic architecture compiled directly by craftsmen, architectural historians, architects and other building specialists from their own field observations of buildings which they have inspected, repaired or restored. ANE records techniques of installation and properties of historic building materials, especially those from the pre-industrial era for which few or no written descriptions survive. These materials embody empirical knowledge developed over centuries of trial-and-error by thousands of craftsmen who once transmitted their knowledge orally to apprentices.

Very interesting! Thanks for sharing that Matt. I just visited a historic house in Boston last week, so this topic is relatively fresh in my mind.
