Gothic Revival  (1840 1880)

 

 

            This architectural style drew inspiration from the medieval age.  The basic building structure was either symmetrical or asymmetrical.  A primary feature was the steeply pitched roof, with steep cross gables.  The gables were usually adorned with vergboard, or decorative gingerbread.  Windows in the gables were often pointed arch in shape.

            A number of homes survive in the Port Huron area.  Gothic Revival examples in the Olde Town Historic District include high style 1205 7th Street and 838 Court Street.
