House History: Floor plan books

These books of floor plans contain designs and basic plans of homes from our recent past. Some feature local designs, while others are generic. Some show plans that were available cheaply from house plan services, some feature styles once available as kit homes, and others showcase architect-designed houses that can give you a sense for the details of period architectural style.

The books in this list are arranged by date, with the oldest house plans listed first. They are only a sample of what the library owns -- a few librarian favorites!
