Federal Style (1790s-1820s)

The Federal style was the first truly American house style and is found mostly in states on the East Coast.  Good Finger Lakes examples are the Halsey-Beebe House and the Bank of Newburgh Building in downtown Ithaca. 

Look for:  fanlights and sidelights around the front door, keystone lintels above windows, shutters, and balustrades.
