Read an Excerpt

America's Midwest is the recipient of some of the most remarkable architecture, covering every style and period imaginable, including Classical Revival, Gothic Revival, Art Deco, and Prairie. Dozens of architects made their mark on this area of the country, e.g., Robert and James Adam, Frank Lloyd Wright, George Grant Elmslie and William Gray Purcell, Francis Costigan, William W. Boyington, George Ingham Burnett, Isaiah Rogers, and others.

Stop in Sioux City to see its amazing Woodbury County Courthouse by George Grant Elmslie. Linger in Ida Grove, Iowa, where well-known machinery manufacturer Byron Godberson was so taken with Gothic architecture that he paid for its use on a number of buildings, including a McDonald's. Tour the remarkable Midwest with Winter and Vertikoff as they verbally and visually reveal the places and architecture that made the Heartland famous.
