1905 Colonial Revival

Gorgeous 1905 Colonial Revival style L. F. Cornell House in Jamestown, NY, designed by Danish-American architect Carl C. Pederson.

America’s most enduring residential architectural style, the Colonial Revival got its start in the late 19th century and has never really gone away. A product of the late Victorian period, it looked back to the Georgian, Federal, and Greek Revival styles. It freely combined elements from all of them, often with some elements of other popular Victorian era styles.

Understanding the architectural style of your house should be the starting point for planning your restoration/rehabilitation project.

Colonial Revival is one of the 25 styles and types illustrated in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”

The 720-page award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.

Signed and personalized copies are available directly from the author in our shop, https://yourhistorichouse.com/shop/
