Folk Architecture in America (USA)

None of these images are mine.

Now these you should be able to find in most parts of the US. These were the common styles used by Americans in the 19th and early 20th century for their homes, shops, churches, etc. A great deal reflects both Victorian era architecture and more American styles at the turn of the century.

So, to get the conversation started on folk architecture in America, here are a few examples!




More American style

None of these examples are folk architecture sorry to say. Folk architecture are early structures built out of local materials, like log cabins, clay buildings, etc; are an architectural style originating from a small local region, like Acadian houses around southern Louisiana dating before the Civil War and sod houses from the American midwest during the 1800s. Most of the styles you posted above were Victorian Gothic, east coast colonial, Italianate, Queen Anne, 4 square, and 1920s arts and crafts.
