I was out today (as mentioned in another post) and came across what I think is the only example of a "Shingle" style home in the area. At least I haven't seen anything like it yet This home is on College Avenue in Elizabethtown, a stone's throw from Elizabethtown College. Built in 1910, it's a near-perfect example of the genre, with a gambrel roof, front overhang porch and shingle siding. Here's a photo:
Even though the Shingle style is a victorian style, it came late in the movement, around 1890-1900. Ths style does not emphasize decorative detailing around the windows and doors (another victorian hallmark). From the other victorian styles it borrowed wide porches, shingled surfaces & lopsided forms. Also it adapted gambrel roofs and classical columns (as in this example). Lastly, it borrowed an emphasis on non-symmetrical shapes. All of these style points are picked up in this gorgeous home. Shingle-style homes are hard to find these days, and I was very excited to see this great example.
