复古风格并不是一种风格,包含有许多种类。希腊复兴时期1825 – 1860更加引人注目的架构(（历史新英格兰，2015）。希腊复兴是基于经典的罗马风格的建筑。这些建筑有一个希腊风格的Parthenon形式方面，希腊风格的造型，窗框和拱门，廊式屋顶。一些典型的特点是对称的正面，给希腊庙宇的正面。另一方面，哥特式复兴建筑的修改，更多的是一个中世纪的自然。不对称品种优先。经典的款式都放弃了assymetricity。建筑大多是木结构，延伸到山墙窗。烟囱有中世纪的外观和不对称的，大多是L形的计划是首选。装饰，炮塔和城堡风格的设置完成了哥特式的外观。
The revivalist style was not one style but many. The Greek revival period was more notable seen in the architectures of 1825-1860 (Historic New England, 2015).The Greek revival was based on the classical Roman style constructions. These constructions have a Grecian style with fronts in the form of a Parthenon, Grecian style moldings, window frames and arches and also porch style roofs. Some typical features were that they were symmetrically a facade, giving the front of a Greek temple. On the other hand the Gothic revival was architectural revisal that was more of a medieval nature. Asymmetrical varieties were preferred. The classic styles were dropped for assymetricity. The architectures were mostly wood framed, with windows extending into gables. The chimneys had a medieval look and as asymmetrical, mostly L shaped plan was preferred. Ornamentation, turrets and castle style setting completed the Gothic look.
Other styles that were revived in the same time across America, along with the Gothic revival were the Italianate style. This style started in Europe as part of the picturesque movement that wanted architectures to stop reflecting classical ideals. Informal Italian villas were the inspiration for this. The towers were square, the floor plans quite asymmetrical (Historic New England, 2015). Domestic constructions were seen to be more asymmetrical in nature, quite distinguished from the constructions of the Greek revival structures. Italianate ornamentations were present, and the typical Italianate house was seen to have more than one floor at least. Tall narrow and glazed windows and paired doorways completed these villas.
