Romanesque Revival style

Romanesque Revival style

(1840–1900)
A style characterized by monochromatic brick or stone buildings, highlighted by semicircular arches over window and door openings. The arch was also used decoratively to enrich corbel tables along the eaves and courses marking horizontal divisions. The arches and capitals of columns were carved with geometrical medieval moldings. Facades were flanked by polygonal towers and covered with various roof shapes.
