The Colonial Revival style was the most popular form of architectural expression in the first half of the twentieth century. Houses of this type combine a variety of historical and contemporary elements (mostly Georgian, Federal, and Dutch Colonial) to recreate the “feel” of earlier American buildings. Individual elements, however, are often exaggerated. Front entries are emphasized often with classical-inspired porticos. Palladian windows and other classical details from a wide range of Greek, Roman and Renaissance precedents are frequently incorporated into gables and facades. Windows are normally arranged symmetrically and contain double-hung, multi-pane sash.
