In the late 1920s, architectural photographer Frances Benjamin Johnston began a privately funded project to document the historic Chatham estate and Old Falmouth, Virginia. After the initial success of this project, she received funding from the Carnegie Corporation to document notable buildings and landscapes throughout the American South. The Corporation required that the negatives be deposited with the Library of Congress, and after her passing in 1952, they also received 20,000 additional images. Currently over 7,100 of Johnston's images can be viewed on this site, and visitors can perform detailed keyword searches, or they can just wander around at their leisure. Users can also look through the "image sampler" to see a few highlights. The site also contains a list of related online collections, a selected bibliography, and information about how the collection was digitized.
