Many experts say that some of the most unappreciated architecture in the U.S. is in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Now, a new book by Jaci Conry is shedding light on the eclectic residential architecture that can be seen throughout this historical area of the state, according to the Cape Codder.
A History Through Houses: Cape Cod's Varied Residential Architecture is a 152-page book that examines the design of homes in regions including Provincetown and Woods Hole. Conry spent years driving around the area, looking for historical houses that were designed in a style that is unique to Cape Cod.
"I've always been interested in historic older homes," Conry told the news source. "My parents are still living [in Falmouth] and loving it. Cape Cod architecture is very unique. There are so many different eras."
Conry notes that many of the houses that were built in Cape Cod in the 1700s were designed to withstand harsh New England weather conditions. Their structural designs are still standing strong today.
Employment of architects is predicted to increase by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
