This style of home comes from the basic need for shelter. National-style homes are less adorned than the European Victorian style homes. In early America, builders copied from Native American and tended to build these homes more for utilitarian needs.
The style is typically utilizes rectangular shapes with side-gabled roofs or square layouts with pyramidal roofs. The gabled-front-and-wing style this home in Danville is in the subset of the National style known as “Massed” plan styles, recognized by a layout more than one room deep, often sport side gables and shed-roofed porches.
National style homes have been around since the pre-railroad days but the style is still used as the basis for new custom built homes and can be found all over the country.
