An excellent keep-in-the-car reference is A Field Guide to American Houses by Virginia and Lee McAlester (Alfred A. Knopf; 1990, $21.95 , softcover). To learn more about houses open to the public, contact the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities (SPNEA), 141 Cambridge St., Boston, MA 02114; 617-227 -3956.
