Renaissance Revival style

Renaissance Revival style

(1840–1890)
A revival style characterized by a studied formalism, its symmetrical compositions are reminiscent of early 16th-century Italian elements. Ashlar masonry is accented with rusticated quoins, architrave framed windows, and doors supporting entablatures or pediments. A belt or string course often divides the ground or first floor from the upper story, and small square windows are used on the top story.
