Organizational History

The Historical American Building Survey (HABS) drawings are copies from the collection at the Library of Congress. The project was from a 1933 National Park Service proposal to put unemployed architects to work documenting "America's antique buildings." The HABS program was funded by the Federal Works Project division during the depression. In 1974, all the HABS measured drawings were collected and transferred to the Library of Congress.
