American Homes and Gardens®
Founded by Scientific American, the first Issue of American Homes and Gardens was published in July of 1905 by Munn & Company Publishers in New York, NY. Making the world's books discoverable online, Google digitized American Homes and Gardens Volumes 1-14 (1905-1914) from the original magazines that have been preserved at the Library of the University of Michigan College of Architecture and Princeton University for generations.
The historial archives of American Homes and Gardens are available to our readers in cooperation with the HathiTrust Digital Library, a partnership of major research institutions and libraries working to ensure that the cultural record is preserved securely for access and use today, and in future generations.
