Colonial Courthouse • Order A Print

The Georgian period began in the early 1700s and ended around the time of the American Revolution in most places. In York, however, the period lasted much longer. The period can further be divided into early, middle, and late, but for simplicity sake we’ll lump it into a single category. Some features of this English-influenced style include a symmetrical faηade, gable roof, double end chimneys, central entrance, and watertable. Flemish bond brickwork is prevalent and the windows are multi-paned and typically have brick lintels. There are many Georgian Period buildings in York, including the Colonial Courthouse.
