An Elegant Federal Style Townhouse.

Federal is the American name given to the style created in England by the Adams brothers, designers who refined the Classical elements of Georgian architecture into a distinct style. The style was popular from around 1790 to the early 1830s, when the more robust Greek Revival style swept the nation.

Federal is one of 25 architectural styles and types illustrated and described in Chapter 2 of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners. The 720-page hardcover book was released earlier this month and is available online and in bookstores nationwide. Signed copies can be ordered directly from the author at YourHistoricHouse.com.

If your local bookstore doesn’t carry the book, please ask them to contact their rep at W.W. Norton to order it.
