Based on the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum exhibition “Architectural Encounters,” this fully illustrated catalogue features a collection of essays by scholars and historic preservationists Roberta Feldman, Lisa Yun Lee, Vincent Michael, Michael Plummer, and Estevan Rael-Gálvez.

How do we prevent historical amnesia? How should cultural significance be determined and who should determine it? How can we preserve vernacular history? What role should preservation play in fostering a sense of community? These are the questions that are addressed by the authors from a combination of personal, professional, and scholarly perspectives. Each essay reminds us of “the power of place and the ability of material cultural and objects to affectively summon a feeling.”
