Spanish Colonial Revival

Wikipedia Page for Spanish Colonial Revival architecture

This style is based on Spanish colonial and Mexican buildings that were built in California, Texas and the American Southwest between the early 1600s and the 1840s. The style regained popularity as a revival style during the 1920s. Chicagoans used it for houses and religious buildings in several community areas, including Beverly, Edison Park, and South Shore.

Common characteristics are:

brick or stucco walls

twisting columns and decorative shields made of terra cotta

round arched windows

elaborately rounded roof parapets based on Spanish colonial missions

clay tile roofs
