Dutch Colonial


Dutch colonial houses are named after American settlers from the Netherlands in the early to mid 1600s. This style continued into the 1800s, retaining the gambler roof and narrow skylights. This home-style is usually brick or stone, only one room deep and two to three rooms wide. This style started to fade out for a couple of decades, however, during the 19th century, the Dutch Colonial Revival began. This revival brought different and more modern interpretations of this style, but still maintained their defining characteristics.
