What is the Colonial Revival style, and what is it a revival of? This genre encompasses the Georgian, Federal, and Greek Revival building that took place in America between 1750 and 1850; it is a revival of all three—a nostalgic re-doing of these styles in this time period.

Watch as Brent tours a home built in 1926 by an architect named John Staub.
