A Walking Tour of Architectural Styles
Conclusion

By Herbert J. Githens

The buildings on this tour are visual evidence of building methods and social fashion in nineteenth-century Jersey City. Architectural style is useful in bracketing buildings within approximate dates, and the styles of nineteenth-century Jersey City townhouses can indicate the following general decades of construction:

Greek Revival 1830-1860s
Italianate 1850-1870s
Second Empire post-Civil-War
Eastlake 1870s-1880s
Romanesque Revival 1880-1890s
Queen Anne 1880-1890s

Historical maps and deed searches provide a more accurate dating method.
