The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!
The Tudor Revival style Frank D. Yuengling Mansion. Located in Pottsville, PA, the mansion sits behind a fabulous wrought iron fence and gate.
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.
