Cape Cod Revival

The Cape Cod Revival is a subset of the Colonial Revival style and it too was popular from the 1880s to the 1950s. The Cape Cod was loosely modeled after the early wooden folk houses of eastern Massachusetts. It is a smaller alternative to the two-story Colonial Revival and is typically a 1-story building with bedrooms tucked under the roof. The plan is generally rectangular with a side gable roof, a central front entrance, and two front-facing dormers. There is frequently some classical detailing such as multi-light windows and door surrounds.
