Our 1906 Folk Victorian Farmhouse Renovation

Folk Victorian

It took some time to isolate the ‘style’ of our home, but many of the architectural features and building materials lead us to the Folk Victorian style.

Folk Victorian’s were built between 1870-1910.

Our home was originally built in 1906, so it fit the era of builds at the time. Next, we needed to know the subtype which we discovered to be a “Gabled Front & Wing” which happened to be most popular in southern states during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The spread of Folk Victorian homes was made possible by the railroads which provided heavy machinery & abundant supplies of pre-cut lumber from distant mills. (A Field Guide to American Houses.)

After 1910, these Folk Victorians were replaced with Craftsman & Colonial Revival style homes.
