Dutch Colonial Revival

Circa 1880-1955
The most distinguishing feature of this style is the gambrel roof. The details, such as the window pattern, porches and materials are closely associated with the Shingle and Queen Anne styles. A steep, stepped gable reminiscent of early Flemish architecture can be found occasionally.
