Dutch Colonial Revival
The gambrel roof is the distinguishing feature of the Dutch Colonial Revival. Primarily a residential style, it was popular in Colorado between 1900 and 1925. Other characteristic elements included wide overhangs, dormers, small oval windows in the gable ends, and a porch under the overhanging eaves of the gambrel roof, supported by columns. The building may be side-gabled, front-gabled, or form intersecting gables. A steep, stepped gable, reminiscent of Flemish architecture, is also seen on occasion.
