“ I'm only writing to thank you for a truly fantastic educational and informative website. I'm on the havre de grace historical preservation commission and often need to identify the style of one of our historical homes. without architectural training it can be difficult. I hope you don't mind but I'm going to copy your page of styles and distribute it to commission members, along with credit to your website. It's truly exciting to find your website. thank you so much for sharing the information. ”
