Gothic Revival style

Gothic Revival style

(1830–1860)
A romantic style distinguished by vertically pointed arches, steeply pitched complex gable roofs, finials, and medieval decorative motifs. Country houses featured wide verandas and octagonal towers or turrets. Windows in dormers had hood molds with gingerbread trim running along the eaves and gable ends. Variety was the standard of the style.
