Architects of the Federal period.

While the Federal Era produced many fine long-lasting works of art, Hepplewhite, Sheraton and Chippendale for instance, it's architecture is perhaps the most visible in our daily lives. Leaving the feudalistic Gothic style behind them, architects working in the Federal style drew inspiration from Ancient Greece and Rome. Clean lines, open space and large windows showed off the fledgling country's new wealth while master masons, carpenters, and joiners created beautiful adornment for these new structures.

The architects listed here drew upon the Adams Style and a keen sense of symmetry. They created sound buildings with relatively plain exteriors appealing to their Puritan sensibilities. However the interiors expressed an opulent style and grace afforded only to the wealthy of this booming sea-faring nation.

Currently listed in this section are architects who worked predominantly in New England.
