The Early Automobile Suburb: Creating a Context for Preservation

The automobile has had a profound impact on American life and landscape. Learn about the history, design, and cultural contexts of early automobile suburbs in America, plus the specific challenges involved in historic district designation. A case study from Mt. Lebanon will illustrate use of an extensive community awareness program that made the case for preservation based on historic context.
