A spectacular Colonial Revival style mansion in Pottsville, PA sits across the street from the Tudor Revival style Frank D. Yuengling Mansion and was built for a member of the Yuengling family.
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, freely combining elements from them all, often with elements of popular Victorian era styles.
This is an exceptional example of the style, mixing Georgian, Federal, and Greek Revival elements.
Understanding the style of your house should be the starting point for planning your rehabilitation project. It will help you identify which features are character-defining so you can prioritize their preservation.
