Suzanne Stern
President of Our Town Plans

Traditional architecture has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My father is the founding partner of the award-winning architectural and planning design firm, Historical Concepts, and growing up I spent many hours with him in the office and visiting building sites. After college, I took a job as a residential construction supervisor then worked at Historical Concepts and at a successful commercial architecture firm. These work experiences taught me a great deal about the elements of good design and construction while also cultivating a deep appreciation for homes with a sense of history.

Our Town Plans is the culmination of everything I have learned and dreamed about during more than two decades designing and building homes — which is to make classical, beautiful architecture accessible to all.

Our History

Our Town Plans was founded as a division of Historical Concepts and, today, is a separate company. We provide historically inspired plans for homes and ancillary buildings to developers, builders and individuals. Many of the homes in this collection were initially designed by Historical Concepts as prototypes for traditional neighborhood developments and Idea Houses for magazines. Significant demand was triggered by this national exposure. Our Town Plans was formed in order to focus exclusively on pre-designed plans, while allowing Historical Concepts to continue serving clients who desire custom architecture and planning services.
