Renaissance Revival

1840-1915

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. Used primarily in public buildings and large urban estates in Minneapolis, classic features of the Renaissance Revival style include a symmetrical façades, low-pitched hip roofs, prominent cornices, and horizontal stone banding between floors.
