Need floorplans for old Southern US Farmhouse - any ideas?

Post by zinkerboy » Tue Feb 10, 2015 3:24 pm

Hi

I am going to be running a Trail of Cthulhu adventure based in 1930's Alabama at a few conventions this year including Gencon. My Google searching is obviously weak as i have been unable to find a good picture of an old deluxe farm building or a decent set of floor plans.

So, any pointers in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

This site has a wide range of old home designs, from modest to grand: http://www.housemouse.net/homeplan.htm

Also, since you're looking at vintage American rural architecture, try searching for Carpenter Gothic house plans. That's one of the major US architecture styles for rural homes...

Also Chaosium did some products with house plans. Link to the first one.

With the historical houses, also look at some of the historical sites near the areas you are looking at. Some places like plantations or whatnot might be more of a museum today but the floorplans might be online. And also you'll get some good collections of photos to use for other things like other locations to see/visit or just describing the area.
