STYLE INFORMATION

Name

Colonial Revival

General Range

1890-1950


HISTORIC OVERVIEW OF THIS STYLE

The Colonial Revival style looked back to the houses of colonial settlements in North America for inspiration. The style began as an influence of the Queen Anne style but became a separate and very popular style from the 1890s and well into the last century. It provided a common approach to residential design throughout the first half of the 20th century and was then picked up later in the 20th century in new construction. Colonial Revival houses are found in larger numbers throughout the county, and particularly in Erie City.
 
The details of the Colonial Revival style often point back to the residential construction of the years 1750-1820. Houses tended to have end-gabled roofs, often with small dormers and end chimneys. The wall surface was smooth, with multi-light windows flanked by shutters. While paired windows were rare in colonial times, they were a common feature in the Colonial Revival style. Other common features of the Colonial Revival style included full-length front porches, the entrance centered on a 5-bay elevation, a sunrise transom, and oversized sidelights. Some houses featured a portico over the entrance rather than the full-length porch; these porticoes were gabled and either arcuated (with a barrel vaulted ceiling below the gable; an example is 4520 Cherry Street, Erie) or coved (with a half-globe cut out below the gable).
