Why support our work

SAH Archipedia is a free, expert-written, online educational resource that provides open access to the history of the U.S. built environment from the earliest settlements to contemporary landscapes and structures. 

The foundation of SAH Archipedia is a 26-year effort by the Society of Architectural Historians to document and interpret the history of U.S. buildings, landscapes, and urban settings on a state-by-state basis through the award-winning Buildings of the United States book series.

SAH Archipedia tells the story of the United States through its buildings, landscapes, and cities. This freely available resource empowers the public with authoritative knowledge that deepens their understanding and appreciation of the built environment. But we need your support to maintain the high-caliber research, writing, photography, cartography, editing, design, and programming that make SAH Archipedia a trusted online resource available to all who value the history of place, heritage tourism, and learning.

Please support SAH Archipedia by making a donation today, large or small. The Society of Architectural Historians, a nonprofit educational organization, will acknowledge every contribution with a receipt.
