    Maryland's 100 in SAH Archipedia Classic Buildings
    A Lecture by Lisa Davidson and Catherine Lavoie
    Historic American Buildings Survey, National Park Service

    Wednesday, April 19 at 6:30 p.m.

    Maryland is now represented in SAH Archipedia: Classic Buildings, a free, open-access site containing entries for around 100 buildings from each state represented in SAH Archipedia. SAH Archipedia is an authoritative online encyclopedia of the built world published by the Society of Architectural Historians and the University of Virginia Press, and contains histories, photographs, and maps for more than 17,000 structures and places.

    This new content represents Maryland’s most characteristic buildings and sites, compiled by coordinators Lisa Davidson and Catherine Lavoie. Davidson and Lavoie will discuss their choices for the Maryland 100 and the considerations that guided their selection. Themes such as Maryland’s transportation, religious, maritime, and African American history were especially important, as were including noteworthy local building forms such as five-part-plan Georgian houses. Special attention was also given to representing the geographic diversity of Maryland as wells as time periods ranging from the 17th to the 20th centuries.
