Death of the Dream: Farmhouses in the Heartland

by William G. Gabler
 
THE INDUSTRIALIZATION of the American economy between 1862 and 1893 provided pioneer farm families with the means to realize their dreams on the Midwestern prairie. Now the last of their original farmhouses are disappearing. "There was no way to save them," writes author William Gabler, "But their great homeliness and variety could be recorded in photographs."
