Dutch Colonial

The Dutch Colonial Revival style is a subtype of Colonial Revival and was popular from the 1880s to the 1950s. This style was derived from early Dutch houses built in the northeaster United States in the 18th century. It is characterized by a gambrel roof which is a single roof with two slopes on each side of the building. These buildings were sided in wood clapboard or shingles though they were sometimes sheathed in brick. Most have a symmetrical front facade with a classical entry portico.
