Background on Tudor Revival Style
A renewed American interest in medieval
English architecture began about 1900 with a revival of Gothic and Jacobethan styles. Different from Tudor, Jacobethan
architecture was usually executed completely in brick or stone with classical limestone details and window lintels.
Tudor Revival, with its characteristic wood half-timbering and stucco, began later in the 1920s. Fueled by earnings
from Wall Street, the style earned the name "stockbroker tudor" in places like Pelham and Bronxville.
