Houses for Science traces the unique architectural and scientific evolution of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory from whaling village, to "summer camp" for biologists, to world-renowned research and educational institution. Situated on Long Island's fabled North Shore, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has a one-hundred-year heritage of superlative basic research in genetics and an architectural patrimony that spans nearly two centuries.

In Houses for Science architectural historian Elizabeth Watson skillfully integrates the fascinating story of the construction and preservation of this village of science with a chronological account of the history of the Laboratory and the fundamental discoveries made here. Augmenting this account are essays by Nobel laureate James D. Watson on the key advances made in genetics research during the Laboratory's first one hundred years.
