As is the case in most cities and towns, the architectural history of Ohio is diverse, rich and a reflection of the various cultures of people that migrated to the state. Gothic Revival style homes, churches and public buildings were built between 1835 and 1870. Romanesque Revival, is a Northern Italian and German-style architecture, popular amongst churches and public buildings. During Ohio’s greatest growth period and building boom around 1870, the Italianate style was introduced. Inspired by Napoleon III who developed the Second Empire style in France during the 1850s to maximize space it was later introduced in Ohio. One of the key features of Second Empire buildings is they often have a detailed mansard slate roof. Between 1880-1905, Ohio architecture was Queen Anne style with wrap around porches, rounded towers, bay windows and gable roofs. In the first half of the 20th century, the Jacobethan Revival was popular among Ohio’s elite. Post-World War II, the Ranch style home gained popularity. Some famous architectural buildings in Ohio include, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum, Key Tower, Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium, Ohio Stadium, Truman Bagby House, Brumback Library, Urbana Bailey Hall at Urbana University, Orville Wright’s home in Dayton, Stan Hywet Hall, Westcott House, Cincinnati’s Union Terminal and Cleveland Arcade.
