We will begin with the wigwams of Native Americans and log houses of settlers and trace the evolution of styles from Federal to Greek Revival, Italianate, Second Empire, Queen Anne, Shotgun, Worker’s Cottages, Romanesque, Renaissance, Shingle Style, Rustic, English Tudor, Georgian, Four Square, and Bungalows/Arts and Crafts. We will also mention the principal residential architects and touch on the development of apartment buildings and doubles.
