Throughout American history, Americans have built all sorts of structures to call home. This traveling exhibition, which began a six-year national tour in 2014, was adapted from the original exhibition at the National Building Museum in Washington D.C., and explores the artistic, social and cultural history of the American house. It is being toured by Mid-America Arts Alliance and has been made possible by NEH on road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
