Browse Colonial Revival houses for sale in Long Beach, CA.
The Colonial Revival architectural style sought to revive elements of American colonial architecture and is one of the most well-known and widespread residential architectural styles in America. The beginnings of the Colonial Revival style are often attributed to the Centennial Exhibition of 1876, which reawakened Americans to the architectural traditions of their colonial past. Colonial Revival was extremely popular throughout the 1940s and still is today, despite the movement ending around World War II.
Original colonial architecture was introduced by British, Spanish, French, and Dutch settlers but by the late 1800s, bigger and fancier, ornate homes like Victorians and Greek Revivals were very popular so this influenced Colonial Revival designs.
