During the construction of the Erie Canal in the early 1820s, the population of Western New York increased 145 percent. Many of these pioneers were European immigrants, with a high concentration hailing from the German-speaking states. These immigrants brought their Lutheran ideals and continued to practice the religion in their new homeland. By 1827, the first official Lutheran church in Erie County had been incorporated as the German Reformed Church, known today as St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Eggertsville. Soon after, the need for mission churches arose, and by the mid-1800s, Lutheran congregations had been established in several Western New York suburbs. During the following century, the Lutherans in Western New York would undergo growth and change. While all congregations eventually abandoned German as their primary language, many struggled to further separate from their German roots during the Nazi regime. Today, there are nearly 200 Lutheran congregations in New York.

The author confesses that she became interested in doing this pictorial study just because she likes nineteenth century architecture. And for this very reason she has composed a scholarly appreciation, rather than a cumbersome technical analysis, that all can read with enjoyment, whatever one's acquaintance with the formal study of architecture. In the introductory chapters she recounts the history of the region and the economic and social background of its people, as well as the relevant architectural history. This book helps one appreciate why, after years of neglect and abuse, nineteenth-century architecture has finally been recognized as integral and valuable to the American cultural heritage. Here is a collection of photographs which capture the charm and often stately demeanor typical of private nineteenth-century dwellings in the northeastern United States.
