Capital Houses; Historic Residences of Washington D.C. and Its Environs, 1735-1965

By James B. Goode. Photography by Bruce White

Washington's history of domestic architecture offers a remarkable range of periods, styles, and types yet, unlike the city's great monuments and civic buildings, its documentation and in-depth studies have been scarce. Architectural and social historian James B. Goode and award-winning photographer Bruce White fill that void with their magnificent study of Washington's historic residences that will come as a revelation even to those who think they know the city.

Capital Houses examines the history of Washington's domestic architecture over a period of nearly 250 years. The most comprehensive survey of the city's historic houses to date.
