Colonial Revival Architectural Styles

Wikipedia Page on Colonial Revival Style

A revival of interest in the architecture of colonial America occurred between the 1880s and World War II. Known as Colonial Revival, the style combines elements of both Federal and Georgian architecture, which were popular styles in America in the 1700s and early 1800s. In Chicago, examples can be found in such areas as South Shore, Forest Glen and Beverly.

Common characteristics are:

symmetrical facades, often with side porches

red brick or wood clapboard walls

entrances decorated with sidelights, transoms, columns, and pediments

either hip or gable roofs, often with dormers
