Historic American Buildings Survey & Historic American Engineering Record
The Library of Congress Memory Project has many interesting collections within it. One of the most useful might be the Built in America Collection. This collection hosts over half a million images, drawings and records for historic American structures dating all the way back to pre-Columbian times. It's the online access point for the Historic American Buildings Survey, Historic American Engineering Record, and the Historic American Landscapes Survey. You can visit the collection highlights page, where a sample from each of the fifty states is listed.
