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!
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, sometimes with elements of the popular Victorian era styles.
This example draws primarily from Georgian Colonial with 20th century features like the tri-partite windows on the first floor and the sun porch at the left. A balancing wing at the right, largely hidden by shrubs, may contain a garage entered from the rear. This is a fine example of Georgian Colonial in a Pennsylvania context where the use of stone was common in the 18th century.
