The Library of Congress offers this website, Built in America: Historic Building and Engineering 1933-Present in the United States of exhibits drawing from two large collections, Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) and the Historic American Engineering Record. The collections include "measured drawings, large-format photographs, and written histories for more than 35,000 historic structures and sites in the United States dating from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries." The collection can be downloaded as a single file or explored through the various exhibits, such as Touring Turn-of-the-Century America, 1880-1920. A collection of images organized by state is also available and provides a sampling of buildings and engineering technologies which range from windmills and one-room schoolhouses to the Golden Gate Bridge and buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
