Colonial Revival

Reviving Federal and Georgian style architecture and design, the Colonial Revival period began with the Centennial Exhibition in 1876 as a way to acknowledge American history and unite a nation after the trauma of the American Civil War. The Colonial Revival influences a vast group of mediums including architecture, decorative arts, landscape design, and historic preservation, each fluctuating on levels of accuracy. The Colonial Revival has remained popular in American material culture as it is popular in homes, public buildings, and commercial businesses.
