The Tudor Revival style Frank D. Yuengling Mansion, Pottsville, PA.
Designed by Reading, PA architect Harry Maurer, the house was built in 1913 in the fashionable Tudor Revival style. The house includes elements of the “Jacobethan” variation of the Tudor Revival.
Yuengling was the heir to the Yuengling Brewery, established in 1829, and expanded the business significantly. It is the oldest family-owned brewery in the US today.
Tudor Revival was a popular romantic style for homes in the early 20th century, from small “storybook” kit-house cottages to the grand suburban mansions that led the style to be nicknamed “Stockbroker Tudor.” These wonderful houses survive in all sizes from Maine to California.
Understanding the style, or styles, of a house will help you identify which features are character-defining so you can prioritize their preservation.
Tudor Revival is one of 25 historic architectural styles described and illustrated in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
