Georgian buildings range from simple farmhouses to high-style residential types. Typically one to two bays deep, the houses are identified mostly through their symmetrical facades. With centrally-placed, paneled entry doors, the doors are often surmounted by a pediment or elaborate crown, or entablature. A horizontal band of small windows are often placed under the crown. Window placement is symmetrical, being three to five bays wide, and usually consists of double-hung sash with small panes (if original). With large center chimneys, the roofs are mostly gabled though some are gambrel type.
