Territorial style

Territorial style

An architectural style in New Mexico from the time it became a territory of the United States in 1848 until about 1900; typically, a one-story house usually having a flat roof with parapets, exterior walls of adobe coated with adobe plaster or stucco; an entry door commonly flanked with sidelights; brick trim around doors and windows with pedimented lintels above, sometimes with wood decorative trim suggestive of the Greek Revival style. Such houses were sometimes built around an enclosed courtyard with rooms opening onto a covered walkway around the perimeter of the courtyard.
