THE author does not pretend that all early houses in the United States are included in this volume. Had this been done, it would have been necessary to list so many that the book would either have resembled a mere index, or have been extended far beyond the number of pages convenient for one volume.
As a rule, only such old houses are included as have interesting stories connected with them, or those which have been the homes of interesting and famous people. A few have been mentioned whose chief claim to distinction is their age, but only when this itself is remarkable.
Nor does the author claim that all of the old houses in the United States with interesting histories have been included; merely those which to her seem the most interesting. The omissions have been made chiefly because the houses, though interesting, were too modern to come properly in the book's field. Very few of those included are less than a century and a half in age, and many are much older.
Since many of these houses have been taken over by historical or family associations, all buildings to which the public is admitted, either gratis or on payment of a small fee, have been marked in the index with an asterisk.
