    Architectural Traditions in the Early Chespeake: Maryland's Five-Part Houses 

    Maryland’s rich collection of five-part houses stands as a testament to both English classical ideals and local building traditions. In this presentation, Marcia Miller of the Maryland Historical Trust will explore the phenomena of the five-part house in Maryland, focusing on the design, construction, and uses of these varied houses and villas.


    Marcia Miller is chief of the field research office of the Maryland Historical Trust, where she oversees the documentation of Maryland’s historic and cultural resources. She has participated in numerous field surveys and historic structure investigations, and is co-editor of Architecture in Annapolis.
