So many fine American homes have been demolished. In architectural history this is a great shame.

Many were more than just homes, they were beautiful works of art, and they should have been kept as homes to love.

This makes me so very sad. How can anyone demolish such beautiful homes? And replace them with what? Modern uglies?
