Dutch Colonial Homes – 1625 – 1840

Dutch colonial homes are usually one story but sometimes can be one and a half stories and even rarer two stories with a side gabled roof with little to no overhang. There are different subtypes of a Dutch Colonial Home

Urban Tradition: Has steeply pitched roofs, matching side chimneys and were usually built with bricks

Rural Tradition – Unflared & Flared Eaves: Usually built with stone and located in rural areas. The flared version was very similar to the unflared rural but had overhanging eaves.
