Welcome to Masterpieces

Have you ever wondered about the origin of a building's style? Most architects refer to history for inspiration in their design plans.

This site explores examples of various architectural styles throughout history in America.

As soon as my blog site is ready I will post more images of the buildings I speak of. Do not hesitate to contact me in the meantime if you have comments or questions about samples on this page.
