Southern Homes and Plan Books: The Architectural Legacy of Leila Ross Wilburn
By Sarah J. Boykin and Susan M. Hunter

Southern Homes and Plan Books showcases the architectural legacy and design philosophy of Leila Ross Wilburn (1885–1967), a legacy that includes hundreds of houses in a variety of popular house styles, from bungalows to ranch houses, built using Wilburn’s plan books during the first six decades of the twentieth century. Wilburn opened her own firm in Atlanta in 1908 and practiced until her death in 1967. She published nine plan books that offered mail order house designs to contractors, builders, and prospective homeowners and allowed them the ease of choosing a preconceived design and construction plan.
Sarah J. Boykin and Susan M. Hunter provide a survey of the southern homes built from Wilburn’s plan books, examining Wilburn’s architectural legacy and her achievements as a plan book architect. The book provides beautiful photographs of houses built from her plans, along with illustrations from the plan books themselves and other related documents from the time. Readers can thus see how her designs were realized as individual houses and also how they influenced the development of some of the Atlanta area’s beloved historical neighborhoods, most notably Druid Hills, Morningside, Virginia-Highland, and Candler Park, as well as the McDonough–Adams–Kings Highway (MAK) Historic District in Decatur. Today, Wilburn’s houses are enjoyed as appealing, historic homes and represent some of the richest examples of southern vernacular architecture to emerge from the plan book tradition.Click the photo or title to view the book on Amazon

    Today’s book isn’t a coffee table book but talks about her life and designs with many color photos and illustrations from her planbooks. Wilburn was one of the first female Georgia architects (Wiki link), publishing nine planbooks starting in 1914 making her the only female architect to have done so.

    OHD has featured a few Wilburn homes over the years (some no longer on the site.) Thomaston home, Martin Home (only registered and logged in OHD Supporters can view that one) and a possible Hartwell home (she has at least one other design in Hartwell on the National Register.)

    1936 Cabin

    Hello Everyone-

    1891 Shingled, Montclair, NJ, 1,599,000
    At first it was just all outdoor shots-quite a few more, which I enjoyed, then it changed yesterday to indoor too. Rather polished off, but there are still the lovely stairs, other woodwork, and the scale of the rooms.
    “This 1891 gem boasts magnificent architectural details, numerous renovations & NYC skyline views from all 4 floors. Yesteryear’s grandeur is evidenced by the stunning foyer with original wood work & lovely gas fireplace framed by whimsical gargoyles, leaded glass windows, gorgeous Hardwood floors leading to a wonderful wraparound porch.”

    18th Century Clapboard, Basking Ridge, NJ, 500,000
    I love all the old details. Used to serve as a tavern and then became just a home in 1832.

    1932 Stucco, Baltimore, MD, 375,000
    I am attracted to the symmetry out front with matching porches flanking a beautiful center window. Inside, the window is opposite a nook with seating and fireplace. The rest gets rather polished, but a nice little home.

    1929 Classical Revival, Sherwood, MD, 9,900,000
    Sitting on 153 acres near the water with all the bells and whistles. What interests me is all the farm buildings and gardens, and of course the house has beautiful woodwork, murals.

    1887 Romanesque?, Baltimore, MD, 885,000
    I do not recall seeing this one posted before, and if so, deserves a good look. There is lots of grand detail in this house. Interesting in that there are several apartments on the upper floors.

      I know, I know! Stop with the “painted woodwork” comments already, but the inglenook in the 1932 stucco would look so much warmer, more beckoning in its original state. As is, it’s nice but a bit chilly for an inglenook. Still a lovely home.

      The 1887 Romanesque is fit for a king! What wondrous details. (Round radiators? Cool.) I have to go back and spend more time in this masterpiece.

      Thanks for sharing such fine homes today.

      1988 Greek Revival Wannabe in beautiful countryside
      NC

      The Sherwood MD house is gorgeous; the whole estate is gorgeous. The gardens are spectacular,sigh. I’m confused about its dates — 1760 in the agent’s description, 1929 as a build date on the dashboard. Even allowing the later time as renovation, it’s not clear what is what. I wonder about the pricing too — maybe the lower one included fewer acres.

    I got really excited because I thought this was an unbelievable deal at $225,000 even if it was in a less populated area of MA. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/5-West-St-Petersham-MA-01366/57632659_zpid/

    It says 1890 and it looks colonial/greek revival but it’s hard to know which dates are right since it’s a mixed up listing.

    Turns out it kinda of was because they seem to have the pictures of the main house still up on Zillow that sold back in 2016 for $449,000 which makes more sense. Other sites like realtor show the caretakers cottage they are talking about in the description, https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/5-West-St_Petersham_MA_01366_M48627-57279

    Still thought the first (sold, incorrectly listed) house was worth a look! Loved the two old stoves in the kitchen and the woodwork especially in the foyer/stair area.

      That big house is a stunner! The kitchen is awesome! And I’ll mention that my daughter is going to be putting a vintage gas stove in her kitchen this summer. She has a 1926 Craftsman, and I think I raised her right. *grin*

      The caretaker’s house is cute too, though I would change things a bit.

    This place is just lovely. In a gorgeous historic district of St Louis (Compton Heights), surrounded by equally stunning homes. Built in 1896, beautifully restored. Vintage light fixtures, fireplaces and bathrooms. I even appreciate the vintage style wallpaper throughout. The front is really eye-catching and the inside matches. Wish I had hit that $800 million lottery!

    Original photos and current walkthroughs: https://photos.app.goo.gl/wTRKAubgZdktQfb96

    I literally put this in last weeks link exchange last night so I hope it is okay to “re-post.”

    I am very excited about this home… It’s so beautiful and despite being abandoned – and I do mean abandoned – for darn near twenty years, she has survived. Pana isn’t exactly a thriving town, but there are some beautiful homes here still. Some of the younger generations have taken it upon themselves to start fixing them up which is wonderful.

    The listing states it was built in 1900. It has been home to a funeral home (Stumpf Funeral Home, Pana, Illinois, 1951-1976) and Dr’s offices (Doc Woods). I haven’t been able to find out specifics about who built it or exactly when. I know that Kitchell, the street it is on, used to be Elm… but that has been all I could track down!

      I was a little disappointed with The Gothic in Norwich. Its a BEAUTIFUL house and don’t get me wrong its just ME! But it was definitely updated inside at the in early 1900s. The staircase, thing dining room (beautiful as it is), the ceiling in the blue bedroom, and some of the fireplaces are all products of the craftsman period.

      • zoomey says: 530 comments

        It’s the painted woodwork! (sorry to be THAT person). Painting woodwork often kills the original feel of the house. Some houses need it, but in this case, the painted woodwork detracts from the moody, gothic atmosphere the house likely had originally. I can see why it was painted: It does look cheerful! White woodwork brightens it up. I like white woodwork and have had it in some of my houses, but for that original feel, give me unpainted woodwork any day.

          Actually mattd and I meant that the interior updates in the turn of the century added to the disappointment. The original period details from when the house was first built had been stripped out.
          But I do agree with your other statements.

        Yes, but . . . but . . . but . . . !
        Okay. I totally agree. The interior disappoints after seeing the exterior of this “lost-in-the-woods” fairy tale Gothic. But I do love the dining room and wish to see the fireplace tiles up close — but I’d love them even more in a home befitting that style.

      My ancestors were from Basking Ridge, but I think the ones I am descended from left this area by the time this became a home.

I don’t like that, window air conditioners, or satellite dishes on old houses.

    Fort Worth, TX

    Classic David S. Hopkins (Plan Book architect in Grand Rapids, IN) Queen Anne style planbook house, c. 1890; possible the only Hopkins example in Terre Haute, Indiana. Priced at $120,000 https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/825-S-5th-St-Terre-Haute-IN-47807/77131769_zpid/ Other examples of this design have been posted on OHD in the past. This design may have been Hopkin’s most popular as I know of about a half dozen or so examples. Some exterior paint and interior updates needed but if I were in the market to buy, I’d see if any of the lovely antique furnishings were available. Almost time capsule like inside and one of a very few well preserved Victorians in Terre Haute’s Farrington Grove historic district. I drove past this house a couple of years ago and liked it then. Streetrview: https://goo.gl/maps/oUsn861yUnM2 Hey, if any of the folks here buy this gem, I’d love to take a look at it the next time we’re visiting the Terre Haute, area.

      Very nice! I always like the Hopkins houses and that one seems to have most of its detail. A good example of decor that feels period though not a curated museum display. An excellent collection of late Vic antiques which have never been popular in our lifetimes and are becoming more rare all the time.

        You’re right. I counted at least 6 Gone With the Wind lamps in just one room. I believe there’s a couple of Eastlake walnut bedroom suites, lots of Victorian bric a brac giving the house an authentic period feel. The kitchen is period too…about 1970. I suspect an older individual or couple lived here and either moved or passed on. I also suspect the photos were taken before the house went on the market so it’s likely an estate sale or auction left the house mostly empty at this point.

            This house could look wonderful with some TLC. Here’s another version in the town of Mannington, West Virginia that was formerly posted on Old House Dreams (streetview) https://goo.gl/maps/ERgTU9va7tQ2 This Terre Haute example could look just as nice. I too think at least one of the stained glass windows (near the staircase) is original.

    My company “Circa 1900 LLC” painted this house. There is not one inch of this place that was not touched. Even the chimney was completely rebuilt from the basement to the roof.

        St Paul, MN

        That’s the “Million dollar” question and in this case literally. I think the word “patina” comes to mind. When I walk into an old house there is a certain smell of old wood , furnishings, etc. faded stains on newel posts, creaky floors, clunky windows, old kitchens and bathrooms. To me it is the essence or soul of a house. when all of that is removed or modified and covered up and re-done the essence is lost or taken away. I’m not criticizing the restoration of that specific home it was all top of the line all the way through. I was in that house when it was 400k and that house has disappeared. A lot would say for the better given the finishes etc, and I wouldn’t argue. But I look at historic homes from a different perspective.

          I think the threshold for over restoration is as individual to the property as it is to the person viewing it. Some folks have pet peeves about updates and some homes seem to take it in stride. Personally, after my sweet lil old shotgun took a bit of weather (aka Katrina) I felt like I had to do a lot of things for her that others may not have even considered doing. I still feel like I preserved what made her unique while also making sure she’s up for the challenge of the next hundred years of kids and dogs and floods. And I don’t mind her drafty windows as long as she forgives me for the PVC pipes.;)

      The paint job looks fabulous!
      To answer Kelly’s question about when you decide a house is over restored, I think the answer is more complicated than patina. I adore, love, love, love the patina of old houses: original woodwork with its original finish, original bathrooms with subway tile and 1920s fixtures, original pantries and kitchen cabinets, old linoleum floors, etc.
      However, when I look at this house in St. Paul, I think, Wow! That’s the best of both worlds! No cranky plumbing to deal with, new wiring (I’m assuming), so no weird glitches in wiring (lights flashing on and off in different rooms, I’ve had this problem!), doors and windows that open and close properly, floors that don’t creak and squeak with every step, reliable appliances, no need to constantly run around the old house fixing the latest thing that’s broken!
      The restoration of this house kept the beautiful wainscotting, didn’t paint the woodwork, updated systems, made everything functional, yet maintained the beauty of the original structure.
      For someone like me, looking towards retirement in a few years, this seems like an ideal compromise. I could live in this house for 20 years, and really enjoy it, without constantly having to work on it. I live in a 1950s house that’s fairly reliable, but without much charm. I don’t have the energy to work on a 1920s farmhouse (my old, beloved house) which was beautiful and perfect and wonderful, but required constant maintenance (stuff just breaks, shifts, sighs in old houses!).
      I respect patina, but give me convenience AND an old house dream at my age!

        I wouldn’t argue with anything you described. I think seven out of ten buyers would agree with your sentiment. Having said that there is a line that is crossed when an old house because of the amount of restoration (I’m not going to use the word remodel that’s a whole different topic) crosses over to a almost new house. When you start using really high end finishes , appliances, etc. The rest of the house pales in comparison. Each room starts to compete with the other rooms until you literally have to touch everything in the house to make it equal. This is more true if your buying to “Flip” . The person that did this house is very into historic homes and restoration. So again I’m not criticizing the work its really meticulous and took two plus years.
        The home in this link is a home I would clean up and repair. It has the “Patina” I long for. It oozes history, Cheers.

          Kevin- When I looked at the home you painted, I thought “Really pretty…could be an old house, could be a replica” When I looked at the second one you posted (the one with the patina) my heart opened and I thought, “I wouldn’t even paint the green walls…just leave them like they do in Europe…” and on and on my imagination went! Real estate and home buying is a verrrry personal experience… and as with most things in life, to each his own…

    You are approximately 143 comments from 10,000 comments. This is a milestone worthy of a celebration. Its seems like months ago it was A handful of people commenting. It is in fact years. Just when I think I know everything about old houses I get schooled and I don’t mind at all. Thank god for you and the likes of John Shiflet, Jim H, Rosewater, etc. They all go back years and years and I have enjoyed their comments.

      I’m actually over 10,000 but when I delete homes from the site the comment count gets knocked down.

      OHD will be on three hands soon, another three-ish months will mark the 10th year of OHD (I’m counting the Dreamer site, version 1.0 as I refer to it, in the 10.) 10 YEARS! I was in my 20’s when this thing started now I’m a couple short of being 40. Will OHD be around for another 10? I kind of hope so, this ain’t a bad gig.

    Hello all, not too much new in CT this week.

    1750 Cape/Saltbox in Brookfield Ct listed for $439k, or less if you don’t want the extra lot next door. It would be hard to let the land go and have some McMansion plunked down next to you. Great barn/guesthouse too.

    https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/29-and-31-Ironworks-Hill-Rd_Brookfield_CT_06804_M35105-27427?view=qv

    This one I just had to share. It’s an 1800 Colonial on 50 plus acres in Sharon, Ct listed at 20 million. Yes, that’s not a typo. Somebody built a 14,000 sf art museum on the property. I know it’s not going to be most people’s taste, but take a look at the craftsmanship. It was built by some very talented artisans.

      Tony, Wow! That is one of the most ornate Queen Annes I’ve seen in a while in Texas. The fretwork is phenomenal but around 1903 this late Victorian era ornamental artform was at its peak. Since whites and greys are all the rage these days, I’m not surprised to see it on the exterior and interior here. Curiously, this house is being marketed by Magnolia Realty, the brainchild of Chip and Joanna Gaines. https://www.magnoliarealty.com/ My, these folks are busy! I’m curious to see what they do with the Cottonland Castle in Waco that they recently acquired. Thanks for sharing.

            Thanks. The gas stoves we had when I was growing up had the huge outdoor tanks (2).

            The sink unit in this kitchen looks as if was sold as a compliment to the stove, esp. with its Formica (looks like it, anyway, I think) skirting. Unless that was done on the part of the owner at the time or their kitchen designer, maybe?

          I think this is a patched-together kitchen using aomw 1950’s modular elements. I had to look because I thought it might be GE Wonder Kitchen, which were basically an entire kitchen built into and under a 9 foot continuous stainless steel countertop. https://retrorenovation.com/2013/04/08/ge-wonder-kitchen/ They are quite rare to see, in my 24 years of showing real estate I have only seen one. But I digress because this is not a Wonder Kitchen. The range in this house looks like it is a vintage Caloric Ultra Matic (1950’s) unit meant for installation into a countertop which someone put on steel legs instead. Most of these units I have seen have only two burners which allowed the cooking units to be spread around the kitchen or mounted side by side, although this one seems to be a 4 burner. The sink-cabinet unit appears to be an example of a relatively common one-piece unit from the golden era of metal kitchen cabinets.

    Quickie question. When y’all are browsing through posts do you rely on the description snippets or just click based on state/style/price? I was playing with the idea of making the pictures larger on the main page, keeping only the status, bed/bath/etc and address/price. Or is that what I did before and everyone hated it?

      The bigger the pic, the better. Having the location is great, and you do a nice job identifying styles. I’m not really concerned about the listing description unless it discusses history or the architect. Most of the time, I don’t have a chance to look at all the houses I’d like to, so being able to pick out the most interesting ones at a quick glance to look at in detail is valuable.

      Thanks for the input on the size of the photos and description on the home page. I made a change this morning to show a larger photo without the description. Sometimes the browser gets confused about the CSS since it caches it and may take a bit to show properly. Phones will remain the same, this is for desktop and large tablet users.

      If you are ever browsing the site and see it all decolored and misaligned it’s your browser not registering the new CSS updates, it’ll take a page or four before your browser updates the CSS (CSS is the code that controls the look of the site.)

    I’m not sure if this property has been shared on OHD in the past but I was intrigued by a Zillow listing for a single family home in Baltimore MD that is for rent ($2,700 a month)
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1401-Light-St-Baltimore-MD-21230/36539086_zpid/
    The listing tells you nothing about the history of the property but it obviously didn’t start it’s life as a house so I googled it and learned that it was one of the original branches of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. It was designed in 1886 by an architect named Charles L Carlson and is described as being Romanesque Revival.
    http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Enoch_Pratt_Free_Library
    Unfortunately I couldn’t find any pictures of the original interior but I thought it was interesting enough to share. Personally I think it looks like an ideal artist’s space.

    I have been browsing other sites of old houses. There is nothing out there which is worth looking at. I check OHD at least once each day and sometimes many more than that. None of the others really tell me anything that I want to know. They don’t seem to even track the properties, so I can tell whether they have sold. Many seem to have sold years ago. I just don’t want to invest my dreaming energy in something that is sold, unless, like here, it is for sale or I know it has sold.

  33. Beth H. says: 239 comments

    Can I ask how you come up with these listings, Kelly? I’m wondering, because my old house was back up for sale again last fall, and didn’t make it on here. (Now the last owners did do some interior renovating that made me cry when I saw the pictures, but it still looked good from the outside!) The people we sold it to (in 2000) basically kept it as a shrine to our decorating choices… which I totally approved! LOL! It did start to look really beat in the intervening 16 or so years that they had it, so it did need some work – but not what happened to it with these last owners.

    Hi Kelly, did I miss a notice about OHD Overseas? I loved looking at the homes in Europe and then one day I don’t see the link. First Fergus disappears and then Overseas is gone – I’ll miss those postings. But, not complaining just curious. You’ve already got your hands full with NorthAmerica and the ramblings from your readers. 🙂

      Nope, it’s still there. I took out the link when I was redoing the menus and just didn’t put it back. Will do so in a minute. Posts are SLOW on OHDO, I keep saying one day I’ll have enough time in the day or energy after working on OHD but that day is always another day. 😀 I don’t know what happened to Fergus.

    This one wins for the most disheartening flip ever. I’m keeping all expletives to myself except for my husband who was within hearing distance.

    The before, granted it wasn’t all original but that living room was beautiful.

    Yes, the same house. 🙁

        If it’s the same developer, that’s their MO. I went through town looking at new construction and comparing to the old street view, really sad. I don’t hate this architecture being what it is for new but wish they had bought some land outside of town or empty lots rather than this.

    Check this out! Titusville was once a hub for knife and cutlery making.

    I think a lot of northern PA towns made fine cutlery. We visited Bradford about a decade ago and they still made Case Knives and has been doing so since the 19th century, Zippo lighters are still in business as well and there’s a gift shop at the factory. Nearby Olean, NY also made fine cutlery but apparently their knife factory closed not long before our visit. Titusville and Oil City as well as Franklin are full of great old homes. If anyone is interested, here’s some photos from Bradford. The mansion grade homes date from the 1870’s to 1900 Oil Boom days: https://www.flickr.com/photos/11236515@N05/albums/72157618714282071 Thanks for sharing the Titusville listing.

      John,

      Your flicker photos are just a treasure trove of awesomeness. I spent some time last night and this morning, and looked at ALL of them. Just wonderful, really.

      And may I say that you are a treasure too? Your comments here are concise, informative, and a real education. Thank you for being here.

        Wow! Such kind words. (I’m blushing) My sole purpose here is to share my passion for old houses and highlight their connection to our collective past. Too many are being lost or remuddled beyond recognition these days so obviously, there’s a need to educate the public about keeping these relics of the past standing in a respectful way. Again, thanks for your nice comments.

    Long time lurker, first time poster. I wanted to share this beautiful 1880 Italinate/stick Victorian house located in the Barnard Park Historical District of Fremont, Nebraska. Fremont, which is where I spent my high school years, has some beautiful architecture. I don’t know the history of this particular home, but it has been well-maintained. However, it’s been listed for sale for nearly a year, and I’m not sure why it hasn’t been moving. Thought OHD might give it a shot in the arm.

      That is a beautiful home – I might wish for another fireplace. Guessing it is location that is part of the selling problem – but really a nice property.

    I grew up in Austin, Minnesota and this house is right next door to the home my mother grew up in. It was built in 1941 and was designed by Harold Crawford who, if I remember correctly, designed many NRHP-listed homes in Rochester, Minnesota. I believe that the same family owned it since it was new; the last occupant was a local optometrist in town. The family is asking $189,000. If I had the opportunity to move back to Minnesota I would snap this place right up. With a bit of spit and polish this estate could really shine again.

    Here’s a nice 4 bedroom, 2 bath, Queen Anne style Victorian in the Indiana town of Osgood for sale by owner for $75,000 https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/433-S-Buckeye-St-Osgood-IN-47037/232093668_zpid/ Osgood, population 1,593, is a rural town in southeastern Indiana with the closest larger city being Cincinnati,OH. (Approx. 54 miles by shortest route) While some TLC is needed, all of the original nice period details remain. I’m not certain, but the house also has a George F. Barber design look. Streetview: https://goo.gl/maps/3q5RoCSd38o The house next door is under restoration in the streetview image.
