Carriage House to Auto House - Brookline, MA

Education & Outreach

Outbuildings are an often overlooked historic resource. This new book is a groundbreaking addition to the preservation libary that shows the potential significance of these buildings. Based on a comprehensive survey of carriage houses and early auto houses in Brookline, the book documents a quickly disappearing resource. The authors have compiled the book so that it can be used as a guide, but it also demonstrates how a building type can evolve to accommodate emerging technologies and changing social patterns. The book captures the relationship between buildings and American society by looking at the buildings that evolved as our transportation system changed from horse and buggy to automobile.
