American Foursquare House Form
Defined by its cube-like shape, the American Foursquare was a popular housing form during the earliest decades of the 20th century. Because of its size and layout, “Foursquares” were abundant in middle-class suburbs as one of a number of new housing forms erected in the wake of innovative building technologies. Like this house, most were generally two-and-a-half stories high with a four-room floor plan and porch extending the width of the structure.
