Dating back to the 1600s, French colonial homes were originally designed by French colonists and are most common in the Southeast in the likes of Illinois and Louisiana, as well as in Quebec. French colonial homes are known for their symmetry and very steeply pitched roofs with wide overhangs. They usually have stucco exteriors, expansive wrap-around porches (galéries) on lower and upper levels with ornate wrought iron railings and details, lots of windows, and high ceilings. Exterior stairs and hallways were used to ventilate the home while raised basements were built in order to prevent flooding during hurricane and rain season.

French colonial style is also sometimes known as Creole architecture, Cajun cottages, plantation architecture, or raised houses.
