The Eastern Shore of Virginia Historical Society  invites you to a reception, lecture, and book signing of  "The Chesapeake House: Architectural Investigation by Colonial Williamsburg," featuring editor Carl. R. Lounsbury.

For more than 30 years, the architectural research department at Colonial Williamsburg has engaged in comprehensive study of early buildings, landscapes, and social history in the Chesapeake region. Lounsbury will speak to this beautifully illustrated volume in which a team of historians, curators, and conservators draws on their knowledge of historic structures in Virginia and Maryland to illuminate the formation, development, and spread of one of the hallmark building traditions in American architecture.
