One of the first formal attempts to document Bostwick House was initiated in 1936 as part of the Historic American Buildings Survey. During the Great Depression, this government program employed our of work architects, draftsmen, architectural historians, and photographers to document significant historic buildings across the country. The HABS archival collection, housed at the Library of Congress, is an invaluable resource for the study of historic architecture. Each entry provides a photographic record of the structure being surveyed, along with a brief historical and descriptive account; many entries also contain measured drawings. The archives, which include the HABS entry for Bostwick, can be accessed online through the Library of Congress website.
