The closely related Georgian and Federal styles have lent a great deal to the history of American housing. Georgian style, named for King George III, became popular in New England in the late 1700s. It was at the beginning of a period of increasing wealth for the colonists and their homes became bigger and more comfortable. By the late 1700s, the Georgian style became more refined and evolved into the Federal style. Our home is inspired by the early Federal period with a decorative entranceway and elliptical transoms.
