Short History of West Overton ~ HABS/HAER Survey (1990)

The diagrams found in the HABS/HAER Survey on West Overton are a terrific resource. The versions presented here are the result of my attempts to show the best qualities of the original diagrams. Here, we can admire and appreciate all the work done by the team of investigators who explored both the history and the buildings of West Overton, and saved all the information for future generations. You can go to the official web site of The Library of Congress (http://www.loc.gov/) and find the Historic American Buildings Survey pages, where you can follow links to the full survey, and all the photographs and diagrams that go with it. However, for those who prefer a direct approach, you will find some helpful URLs at the bottom of this page.
