Scope and Content Note

The miscellaneous architectural collection includes an eclectic group of about ninety different projects. Most are located in Vermont, primarily in northern and central Vermont, and the greatest concentration is in Burlington. The dates range from 1896-1977, though over half are from 1910-1917. A small proportion of the collection consists of drawings of residences and apartments. Approximately a fifth of the projects are of public works, which date mostly from 1907-1917. These include a number of schools (both new and altered), as well as two state armory buildings, a hospital, bridges, power plants, waterworks, and a town clerk's office. Holdings also include drawings of the Chittenden County Court House and Jail, and the Washington County Court House. The greatest proportion of projects in the collection are of commercial buildings. There are plans for several new factories and mills (built 1913-1917), including ice cream, chocolate and maple sugar factories, and also a slate mill. Drawings of Burlington's Flynn Theater are in the collection as well as plans of steel ceilings for a few out-of-state theaters. There are also plans by various railroad companies, most notably Rutland Railroad blueprints (1911-1912), that show the location of railroad tracks, streets and businesses along the Burlington waterfront.
