ABOUT DUTCH COLONIAL ARCHITECTURE
Dutch Colonial is a style of domestic architecture usually characterized by gambrel roofs having curved eaves along the length of the house. The early houses built by settlers were often a single room, with additions added to either end and very often a porch along both long sides. Typically, walls were made of stone and a chimney was located on one or both ends. Common were double-hung sash windows with outward swinging wood shutters and a central double dutch door.
