originally, and |
again from the late 1950s
a sub style of the Colonial Revival, especially in the last phases
The cantilevered second story is typical of this style.
Most Garrison Colonial houses have these features:
overhanging or cantilevered second story
often, with some sort of ornamentation underneath the
all wooden siding or brick and wooden siding on the second floor
Versions of this house style have re-emerged in the suburbs of the 1980s and beyond, which we call Suburban Garrison.
