House Museums on Squidoo

A few months back Katie Hutchison posted a piece about my Squidoo lens, Your Complete Guide to Residential Architecture, on her informative blog, House Enthusiast. Within her very kind post regarding my work online, Katie suggested that I add a new section to the page linking users to house museums.

Well, I thought that was a great idea; an idea that I was surprised was not already on the lens. As a child, Mom would truck my brothers and me to dozens (maybe hundreds) of house museums during summer weekdays. I am sure it was mostly to stay sane and keep us kids busy and focused on something other than tormenting one another. I am also quite certain that all that exposure to historic properties lead me straight to architecture school.

It has taken me some time to add the section, but I would like to announce tonight that the section is live and ready for your perusal. Be sure to scroll through the first several sections to find the new list of house museums. It follows Honor Awards. If you do not find your favorite property, please leave a comment below or drop me an email (there’s a link at the top of this page). Send me a link and I’ll add it to the list.

Thanks again to Katie for the post, as well as the suggestion.

House Museums

Katie Hutchison, over at House Enthusiast, posted a very nice piece about my Squidoo lens, Your Complete Guide to Residential Architecture.

She suggested that I add an architecture/house museum category. I think that’s a great idea and I am quite surprised that I don’t already have that list. My brothers and I grew up visiting every architecture/house museum within a day’s trip from home. It’s how Mom planned most Saturdays while Dad was working. (Now, as a father of three, I have a much better understanding of why Mom always had an interesting place for us to go… It’s called parent survival.) I am sure that our mini adventures to historic homes throughout the region had a huge influence on me becoming a residential architect.

Now, I just need to find the time to make the list for the lens. Maybe you can help. Send a link to your favorite architecture/house museum to

Here are a few to get us started.

Thanks for the idea and the kind post, Katie.
