Colonial Revival Style "Building with History" Video with Brent Hull

Brent Hull walks you through the history of the Colonial Revival style—what makes this style unique and still popular today.

What is the Colonial Revival style, and what is it a revival of? This genre encompasses the Georgian, Federal, and Greek Revival building that took place in America between 1750 and 1850; it is a revival of all three—a nostalgic re-doing of these styles in this time period.

Watch as Brent tours a home built in 1926 by an architect named John Staub.
