Stay up and be the first to meet the Sun I guess, except you'd beat me to it by default based on location ;)

Speaking of buildings, if needing even more information, there exists a large series of small books called "Images of America" which presents many photos of small towns and historic events, often showing the architecture of the area the book covers. If you know what town you're looking for, or at least the state it's in, you can order a book or two about the area from the publishing company directly:

Or save some money and buy from amazon.com:

I looked at the HAER buildings. From what I can tell, they are certainly a good source, but many of the buildings appear to be of Victorian era styles. For someone modeling the civil war era, those plans would be great.
