From Georgian to Neo Eclectic, Here is Every Home Architectural Style in Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C. is most known for its neo-classical architecture, but the styles in the nation's capital are far more diverse than what one might first think. The apartment search website RENTCafé created the below slideshow with architectural styles ranging from 1754's Georgian to 2013's Neo Eclectic. Rather than focus on the components of each style, the slideshow is more focused on the history of different homes on the D.C. market with details on the property value and any notable history associated with each home. Because of this, the slideshow seems less of a comprehensive guide to each style and more of a simple visual timeline of how Washington, D.C.'s home architectural styles progressed over the past two centuries. Regardless, the slideshow is an easy and accessible way to get to know the types of homes you might pass by in the city. Give the slideshow a whirl, and enjoy!
