Spanish Colonial Revival
1890-present
Spanish Colonial Revival architecture seeks to imitate the form of colonial buildings built by the Spanish in Mexico and the southwestern United States. Common elements include Spanish clay tile roofs, plaster or lightly-colored brick facades, iron or wood balconies, and elaborate main entrances. Spanish Colonial Revival became prevalent in the American Southwest in the late 1800s, but was most fashionable across the United States between 1925 and 1945. Few landmark examples exist in the Midwest, and in Minneapolis the style is most often found applied to theaters and apartment buildings of traditional massing.
