Whimsical and Quirky: The Storybook Style

Do you ever wonder who was inspired to build and promote those fanciful homes of the 1920s and 1930s that seem straight out of a fairytale? The end of the First World War brought about a time of nostalgia, of lighthearted humor, and rambunctious building creations and home styles that reflected those of 17th and 18th century Western Europe. Join the Architectural Heritage Center for the story of how Portland came to have so many of these whimsical “Storybook Style” homes.
