The Library of Virginia: The Virginia Historical Inventory Project

The Library of Virginia's Digital Library Program (DLP) has brought to the Web the Virginia Historical Inventory Project (VHI), "a collection of detailed reports, photographs, and maps, documenting the architectural, cultural, and family histories of thousands of 18th- and 19th-century buildings in communities across Virginia." The collection consists of documents created by WPA workers who were specifically directed to focus on "vernacular architecture and the history of everyday buildings." Users can search the database via keyword, subject, author/ photographer, title, or record number, and along with the relevant report, results will link to maps and photographs, when available. A TIFF viewer is required in order to view page images of the reports, and there are links to download the software on-site.
