Reviews
  • As you follow the text and illustrations in this course, we hope you will come away with more than just the ability to visually identify different housing styles and architectural features for your sellers and buyers. You’ll be encouraged to think about and appreciate how events have influenced the evolution of housing design in America, and in turn, how housing styles have helped to determine history’s tableau. This course covers housing styles in the U.S. through the late 1800s.

    3 Elective Hours
