All through the 19th and well into the 20th century, architecture was dominated by eclecticism. Gothic and Italianate Revival dominated for decades but were later supplanted by Greek, Federal, and Colonial revivals. The popularity of all of these architectural styles can still be seen throughout the Portland area.


Please join us as AHC Education Committee member and walking tour docent John Doyle discusses the variety of “revival” architectural styles we see every day in Portland. John will touch on those styles with which we are most familiar as well as some of the later, less familiar and sometimes more whimsical styles such as Jacobean, Byzantine, Egyptian and even Mudéjar. You’ll be sure to come away from the lecture with a better understanding of the subtle differences and architectural elements that define many of our “Revival” style buildings.
