New England Farmhouses, occasionally with Georgian or Federal decorative details, are usually rectangular, range from one-and-a-half to two-and-a-half stories in height, with central entryways situated on the long elevation. Originally sheathed with narrow clapboards, they contain large centrally placed chimneys and windows of small-pane sash, often of twelve-over-twelve or six-over-nine configuration, and placed in a symmetrical three-bay or five-bay façade. Vernacular variations persisted through more rural areas through the nineteenth century.
