Architectural style


  • 1 Georgian

    Technically, the term “Georgian” refers to an era more than a style, spanning the reigns of George I to George IV (1715-1830). Georgian architecture, however, can be characterized by a formal arrangement of parts; it employs symmetrical composition enriched with classical details, such as columned facades. Georgian architecture in Upper Canada (now Ontario) was inspired by the vernacular architecture of early American colonies. It can be found in some of the earliest towns in southern Ontario – United Empire Loyalist settlements, in particular.
