Volume Title
The twenty-eight sites included in the thematic nomination, "Rebuilding St. Georges Hundred, 1850 - 1880", are representative of a broad pattern of historically documented architectural, agricultural, and social change that swept through southern New Castle County, Delaware, in the second and third quarters of the 19th century. The selected sites all document one of three major areas of change in domestic architecture as it relates to rebuilding cycles: the improvement of standing buildings, the replacement of standing structures , and the development of new sites (often at the cost of abandoning earlier settings). Also associated with these dwellings and the social processes they represent and articulate are a number of agricultural buildings reflecting the new design options for work space developed in the course of the rebuilding.
