Architectural History and Building Styles

The study of architectural styles can provide information about the history of a certain historical era. This tutorial shows several styles of houses from log cabins to the the Georgian Revival house popular at the end of the 19th century and into the 20th. The homes featured are all grand homes that reflect the residences of the wealthy over the years. Each style is explained, and, although the vocabulary is very specific to each home, the words are defined within each description.
