Vernacular Architecture Forum website launch

The new and much improved website for the Vernacular Architecture Forum is now public, at

If you have an interest in American buildings of any period and aren’t yet a member, join us. The conferences, which devote at least two days to tours and only one to paper sessions, are always a fantastic way to take the measure of a place, much more so than typical academic conferences which park attendees in a conference hotel for four days, with furloughs for meals. Membership is 45 bucks per year and only 25 for students–cheap! Your dues get you a quarterly newsletter, an annual journal, and reduced conference fees.

You can get a sense for most of the conferences since 2003 on a new Flickr group, here. If you prefer, a map interface to this material is here.
