Renaissance Revival


Inspired by the architecture of sixteenth century Italy and France, the Renaissance Revival style that emerged in the United States was combined with additional elements from Ancient Greek and Roman architecture. While Renaissance Revival architecture was first popular in the United States from 1840 to 1915, it didn’t reach Minnesota until the turn of the twentieth century.
