The original Georgian style was named after the four kings named George who reigned successively from 1714 to 1830. Rooted in the classical design principals of ancient Rome, Georgian was the dominant style of early American colonies Homes in the Georgian style are rectangular, generally made of brick or wood, and have a balanced façade with a paneled front door in the center. A decorative crown often adorns the top of the door, usually accompanied by columns. The chimneys are usually paired on these homes, so as to contribute to overall symmetry. There are great examples of the Georgian Revival style in the Calhoun-Isles community of Minneapolis.
