An Old House in Greenville, Virginia--A Study of Human Intention in Vernacular Architecture is an examination of the cultural, economic, and psychological influences which shaped the evolution of domestic architecture in Greenville, Virginia. The book is organized around a brick house built on Main Street in 1829. When constructed, this house exemplified the vernacular architecture of the valley during the early 19th century. Later changes to the house reflected some of the influences that shaped the town and surrounding region during subsequent years. This book is relevant not only to an understanding of the historical landscape of Greenville and environs, but also to an understanding of the dynamics of cultural landscapes and the records of change embodied in architectural features everywhere.
