History of a Farm House


Kendra Martin Photography

  A Farm House has always been more about its location and purpose than its Style. The geography of the Farm influenced the style of Farm House to be built for instance the people, climate and materials available in that part of the region. True Farmhouses were built by early colonial families of the 1700’s. In the mid 19th century railroads could now travel cross-country and materials became more available hence the farmhouses started to gain some personality. Early 1900’s farmhouse for example Ellery Farms has a long wraparound porch with simple porch posts and railings with a front stoop. The tin roof is spectacular and the white house boasts an equal balanced look on the exterior. Farmhouses are oftentimes cozy & welcoming, straightforward, functional, casual, unpretentious and mesh well with many different styles of décor. Farm House style does not always have to be mason jars and burlap it is very transitional and goes well with traditional, modern, industrial, southern & cottage style, just to name a few.
